In the Office of the Librarian of Congress. 


■ s 



pense of completing a genealogy of the family ; biit after 
some ten years desultory searching, no such member 
appearing, he concluded to do it himself, and this work 
is the result. 

It has been accomplished by working during such hours 
as should perhaps have been devoted to recreation and his 
family, and much has been sacrificed, more perhaps than 
any member would appreciate ; but it has been a labor of 
love, largely acquired since the work was commenced, for 
his ancestry, his family and his name. 

Although so much time has been expended, still the 
writer is well aware of the crude and incomplete condi- 
tion of the record as published. In^hundreds of cases 
different correspondents have given various spellings of 
the same name and different dates, and the writer has had 
to use his judgment as to which should be the best author- 
ity. Much data has come to him so carelessly written that 
mistakes were unavoidable, but he has repeatedly com- 
pared the record with the original data furnished, and 
must charge the most of the mistakes found in the gene- 
alogy to such data. He here makes the request that every 
reader discovering an error will send the correction to him 
at once, and he agrees to place a corrected volume in the 
library of the New England Historical and Genealogical 

He has been kindly assisted by the following persons, 
viz. : Francis Cook Bartholomew, of Northford, Conn., 
President of the William Bartholomew Association ; Wil- 
liam Irwin Bartholomew, of Pomfret, Conn. ; Asbury 
Hall MeiTiam, of North Granville, N. Y. ; Alanson 
Douglas Bartholomew, of Syracuse College, Syracuse, 
N. Y. ; William B. Trask, Esq., of the editorial staff of 
the N. E. Historical and Genealogical Register, Boston, 
Mass. ; Henry Dutch Lord, Esq., historian of the Lord 


family rand of Ipswich, Mass. ; Mrs. Greorge F. Lee, of 
Philadelphia, Pa., and Mrs. Wm. Latta Lee, of Port 
Kennedy, Pa. ; General Riley Lucas Bartholomew, of 
Richfield, Minn.; Richard Curtiss Ambler, Esq., of 
Bridgeport, Conn. ; Francis J. Bartholow, of New Mar- 
ket, Md. ; Major William H. Webster, of Washington, 
D. C, and others too numerous to mention. In fact, a 
large proportion of those addressed have done what they 
could conveniently to facilitate the effort. 

In England, he has received information from many 
sources, especially from Henry Fitzgilbert Waters, Wil- 
liam P. W. Phillimore, George E. Cockayne, Norroy 
king-of-arms, and executor of the estate of Col. Joseph 
L. Chester, deceased, and William J. Berry, all of Lon- 
don, Eng.* 

His efforts to trace family connections in Holland and 
Germany have been very unsatisfactory. 

There are a number of features of the genealogical rec- 
ord that perhaps need explanation : 

The large type invariably refers to the Bartholomews. 

The record of daughters and their descendants always 
mentions their family name and is in smaller type. 

The double doling of years, often found previous to 
1752, was owing to there being a doubt as to the time of the 
commencement of the year; whether to follow the "Old 
Style,** in which it began March 25, or the "Gregorian or 
New Style,** which began Jan. 1. The latter style was adopt- 
ed by Great Britain and the American colonies in 1752. 

* The following named members together generously contributed one hundred 
and ninety dollars towards the amounts paid Gol. Joseph L.* Chester and Henry 
F. Waters. Esq., for researches made in England; viz.: Geo. W. Bartholomew 
and Harry S. Bartholomew of Bristol, Ct., Francis C. Bartholomew of Northford, 
Cl.. .Jercmiuh H. Bartholomew of Ansoniu, Ct., Geo. M. Bartholomew of Hartford, 
Cl, William W. Bartholomew of Meridcn, Ct., Albert L. Bartholomew, Esq., of 
Presum; Iowa, Albert M. Bartholomew of Detroit, Mieh., Edwin D. Bartholomew 
of Decatur. HI. and Prof. Geo. K. Bartholomew of Cincinnati, Ohio. 


Theplan of the genealogy is the same as has been used 
by the New England Historical and Genealogical Society 
for the last thirteen years. The personal history of each 
individual is given in connection with his appearance as 
the head of a family. If any name is not subsequently 
taken up as the head of a family, then his or her history 
is given where the name first occurs. The Roman letters 
and Arabic figures number the children of the family ; 
the large Arabic figures are reference or abstract num- 
bers of heads of families , which appear as such later in 
their regular order, and by which the line of descent may 
be traced. Thus in the family of William Bartholomew, 
No. 228, George Wells Bartholomew, is found to be the 
second child of No. 95, Asa Bartholomew, and he again 
to be the eighth child of No. 33, Jacob Bartholomew. 
The small numeral at the right of each head of a family, 
and his three ancestors given, and of the name of the 
first child in each family, is the number of his or her gen- 
eration from and including the emigrant. 

The abbreviations used are principally b. for born, m. 
for married, d. for died, s. for son, y. for young, set. for 
aged, bapt. for baptized, res. for residence, resides or re- 
sided, rem. for removed, grad. for graduated, prob. for 
probably, (?) for uncertainty, ab. for about, unra. for 
unmarried, ch. for children, M. I. for monumental in- 
scription, and other usual contractions. 

Towns and counties once mentioned are often desig- 
nated thereafter by the initials, as B. for Branford, W. 
for Wallingfotd, etc. 


Bartholomew is the English form of the Syriac name 
of the apostle Barthdmaiy which is derived from Jiar^ 
the Syriac term, as BeJi is the Hebrew, for son ; see Psalms 
ii, 12, translated ** Kiss the Son ;" andTholmai or Talniai 


(the same in Hebrew) is often found in the Old Testament, 
see Numbers ziii, 22 ; Joshua xv, 14 ; 2 Samuel iii, 3 and 
Chronicles ziii, 37, as Talmai. Its signification is ^fur- 
rowed^ from a Hebrew root meaning ** to farrow " or *'cm/." 

The process by which Bartholmai or Bartalmai in He- 
brew becomes Baitholomew in English, is through the 
regular Greek and Latin forms Bartholomaeos and Bar- 
tholomeeus, the second o being an intercalation, thence 
possibly through the French. The Latin ae being treated 
as a siipple e, as in all the other Bomance languages. 

There are other Greek names with similar endings which 
have been anglicised by the use of the termination ew^ as 
Mathaios and Andreas which have become Matbew and 
Andrew ; while Alphaios and ThaddaioSy not having been 
adopted as English names, were retained in their Latin 
form, the early knowledge of all Bible names being 
through the Vulgate translation. Zebedaios probably fol- 
lowed the French form and became Zebedee. 

The processes by which these changes were made are 
so numerous and varied, as the principles of analogy, ease 
of utterance, and so many other natural aud social forces, 
that, with the necessary ignorance of the peculiar history 
of this word during that early transitory period, it cannot 
now be stated just what influences gave it its present form. 


Our name has been adopted by all people who have 
become Christianized, because it was the name of one of 
Christ's apostles. Even among savages wherever mis- 
sionaries have introduced the Christian religion, the names 
of the apostles have been given as baptismal names. 

Probably the first Bartholomew in the state of Connect- 
icut, which nearly all of the name in the United States have 
considered their ancestral home, was an Indian chief who. 


with his fellow chief Neguitimaug, deeded to the English 
settlers the laud upon which the town of Sharon is situated. 
He was undoubtedly converted by some early Christian 
missionary and christened Bartholomew ; which is a fair 
illustration of the manner in which the thousands of others 
originally adopted the name. 

In England, the adoption of family names was at first 
confined to the nobility, but later as the common people 
began to accumulate property and became better informed 
they chose family names. The English Church, after its 
establishment (1538), required liio parishes to keep a 
record of all baptisms, marriages and burials, which per- 
manently established family names. 

In Germany, the adoption of surnames among the com- 
mon people was still later than in England. 

Wherever the name Bartholomew has been introduced^ 
it has suffered numerous changes and contractions, the's 
more ignorant the people the greater the number. 

I will mention a few of the English family names that 
have been made from it, according to those who study 
their origin ; and the immense number which have been 
derived from it by other people can be imagined. They 
are as follows : Barthelemy, Bartholow, Barth, Bartlett, 
Bartelot, Bartle, Bartie, Batt, Batts, Bate, Bates, Batson, 
Bateson, Batey, Batty, Battye, Battcock, Badcock, Bad- 
kin, Batkin, etc. 

The spelling of the name by the ancestors of the Amer- 
ican families was as given in the references to them. 


The pronunciation of our name has been as varied as 
the people using it. The apostles no doubt accented the 
first syllable, as with them it had its special meaning, and 
pronounced it Bar^'toUma!. 


The family in Warborough, England, were, judging by 
the spelling in the recoi-ds, in 1500, called '* jBar-^yZ-mi," 
and that vulgar pronunciation continued down to the 
present century. 

The hill in Ipswich, Mass., named after William Bar- 
tholomew of that place (1634 ?) , and the pond near Salem, 
Mass., named after his brother Henry, are still called Bar'^ 
tylrmt HiU and Bar'-tyl-ml Pond, 

But educated English and American members have 
probably always called themselves Bar-thoV-o-mew, 

Because the name is long and difficult to pronounce it 
has usually been mispronounced, and many have on that 
account changed it, as the great number of similar shorter 
family names in all nations shows. 

In this country there has been but one change, so far ns 
known ; the Bartholow (Bar-lhd-low^) family are descended 
from a German emigrant named Bartholome. 

Different nations spell and pronounce the name regularly, 
as follows : 








Bar-thol-o-ma'hee-ao8 . 

in which ai Greek and 89 Latin have the same sound, viz. : 
that of a'hee or that of ai in English aisle. 

Italian Bartholomeo Bar-tol'-o-ma'-o. 


Bartholomc^e Bar-tol'-o-ma^ 


Spanish Bartolomeo Bar-tol'-o-ma'. 

Portuguese Bartolomeu 

German Bartholomaeus Bar-to?-o-ma'-us. 

Russian Varfolomei 

Polish Bartlomiei. 

Danish Bartholomeuis. 



It is interesting to review what is known concerning the 
man from whom indirectly our name Baiihciomew has 
been given to hundreds of thousands of persons, and es- 
pecially to our ancestors and ourselves. 

Bartholomew was not a family name, but was patronym- 
ical and meant the son of Tholmai or Talmaiy like Barjona 
and BartimsBus. Possibly the original designation ** son 
of Tholmai,'* was afterwards converted into an apostolic 
name, implying son of a farrowed field or cultivated fruit. 

Our knowledge of the apostle is very slight and only 
such as the Acts of the Apostles (i, 13) and the four Gos- 
pels (Matt. X, 3 ; Mark iii, 18 ; Luke vi, 14 ; John i, 45- 
49, xxi, 2) contain. Ho is really never mentioned in the 
last Gospel by this name, but is supposed to be the same 
as the Nathanael (meaning gift of God) mentioned by 
Saint John. 

The identity of the two was never thought of by the 
early church, and Augustine discusses the question why 
Nathanael was not chosen one of the Twelve. The idea 
was probably first suggested in the twelfth century by 
Rupert of Deuiz, and the reasons for it seem sufiicieut. 
They are these : that Nathanael's vocation coordinated with 
that of the apostles as of equal significance ; that on one 
occasion we meet him in the midst of the apostles, some 
named before him and some after (John xxi, 1,2); that 
the three earlier evangelists never mention Nathanael, the 
fourth, as stated before, never Bartholomew, while Philip 
and Bartholomew are grouped together as friends, but 
with Philip first as he was first chosen (Matt, x, 30 ; Mark 
iii, 18) ; that the custom of double names seems to have 
been almost universal at that time in Judea, so that all, 
or well nigh all, the apostles bore more than one. All 
these arguments in favor of the identity with nothing 
against it, bring it very near to a certainty. 


The first three Gospels and the ** Acts of the Apostles'* 
only mention Bartholomew as an apostle without any other 
allusion or incident from which his personal character can 
be imagined. 

But Saint John (xxi, 2) says that Nathanael was of Cana 
in Galilee and in his account of the choosing of Nathannel 
(i, 43-49) gives us a grand portrait of him. 

**48 The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and flnd- 
eth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me. 

44 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. 

45 Philip flndeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found 
him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of 
Nazareth, the son of Joseph. 

46 And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come 
out of Naznreth? Philip saith unto him. Come and see. 

47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an 
Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile! 

48 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus an< 
swered and said unto him. Before that Philip called thee, when thou 
wast under the fig tree, I saw thee. 

49 Nathanael answered and saith unto him. Rabbi, thou art the Son 
of God ; thou art the King of Israel." 

Some ancient writers, living three hundred years after 
his time, have mentioned his preaching the gospel in India 
and Arabia. Modern students think it a mistake, but 
acknowledge the possibility of his having preached at 
Hierapolis in Syria, and through Armenia and of his having 
suffered martyrdom at Albana or Albanapolis, the modern 
Derbend, on the shore of the Caspian Sea. 

These, and numerous other less probable opinions, are all 
founded upon tradition and little reliance should be placed 
upon them. 

There was a gospel which was attributed to St. Bar- 
tholomew, mentioned by Origen and St. Jerome, but Pope 
Gelasius I placed it among the apocryphal books. 

His festival day in the Roman Church is Aug. 24, and 
in the Greek, June 11.

Three Bartholomews bearing above names were living 
in Warboroiigh,* Oxfordshire, England, about 1550; the 
latter two are known to have been brothers, and it is sup- 
posed that the former also held the same relationship, 
from the fact that his son was made an overseer in 
Bichard*s will, while Robert's several and competent sons 
were still living. They held land in their own names, 
were church wardens, etc. 

They frequently used the term ** alias Martyn" (Martin) 
after Bartholomew, but no light has been thrown on the 
reason of its use. It may have arisen from the fact that 
they or their forefathers had inherited an estate through a 
maternal ancestor of that name, and it may be that they 
used the name to honor a distinguished ancestor named 
Martin Bartholomew, as, in a subsequent generation, 
William Bartholomew of the University of Oxford (see 
page 15) used the suffix *^ils Isaac," in honor of his 
worthy grandfather Isaac Bartholomew (IX).

been buried in W., 20 Sept., 1578. 

He was made overseer of his uncle Richard's estate by 
the latter's will in 1577. He or liis son John probably

Ales Vicarage, who was buried in Burford, 26 Oct., 1619. 
He was buried in Burford, 4 Dec, 1643. 

Mr. Bartholomew waa probably the owner of Westall 
Hill Manor in Fulbrooke, where his descendants lived for 
about two hundred years. He may also have been a 
merchant in Burford, as were his brother William and son 

The record of birth of two of his children isfound in 
Warborough, where he may have resided previous to 1601, 
or where he may have returned for a few years about 
that time. 

He was undoubtedly the John Bartholomew, senior, of 
Fulbrooke iu 1641, as which he is mentioned in the record 
of his burial two years later. He was undoubtedly enti- 
tled to bear arms as his sons William and Richard have 
them inscribed ou their mural monuments, but he probably 
inherited that right from his Warborough ancestors, as 
well as the other branches in Staulake and other places. 
One of the three tombs in Bartholomew Cliai>el was prob- 
ably erected to his memory. Children : 


1 WllllamEn* *, m. In Burford, 8 July, 1616, Mrs.* Edith Conl- 
ton, who YfBs buried there 22 Mar., 1657-8. He was buried 
there 6 June, 1662. He held the Westall Hill estate until 
his death, when it passed to his brother Richard. He calls 
himself ** gentleman" and is termed ** M'" in the records, 
as are his uncles and his brothers. His uncle William Bar- 
tholomew makes him an overseer of his estate in his will 
of 1634. He left no children as is presumed from his will, 
of which the following is a synopsis. 

William Bartholmewf of Westall Hill in the parish of Fulbrookc, 
Co. Oxford, Gentleman, made his will 22 May, 1661, which was proved 
3 July, 1662, by his brother and executor, Richard Bartholmew. To 
my brother Richard B. of Burford, Co. Oxford, mercer, all tiiat mes- 
suage of tenement wherein I now inhabit and dwell, in Westahill

xiii ii Richard, church warden in Burford, 1GG9 ; buried there 17 
July, 1679. 
ill George, was living in 1661, with his children William and 
Mary. His place of residence Is not known. He and his 
heirs male were made residuary legatees of tlie Westal 
Hill estate by his brother William on failure of male heirs 
of his brother Richard ; but the latter do not appear to 
have failed. Ch.

Mrs. Friswide, who survived him and was bequeathed

Mr. Baitholomew was a mercer, a dealer in silks and 
woollens, in Burford. 

His long and interesting will, following, is so peculiar 
that it may be considered to have originated with him, 
and his character be judged accordingly. 

The invariable prefixing of **Mr." to his name wherever 
used shows that he held the social rank of gentleman.

Children named in his and his son Richard's wills were 

i Mao'E"K. *, m. at St. Giles Church, Oxford, Eng., 28 June, 1C20, 
Richard Tldmarsh of Brodwell. She received by her 
father's will, only a ring; but he bequests to each of her 
six children, tIz. : 1 Merryiill, 2 Kutherinc, 3 John, 4 Ann, 
6 Richard and 6 Isubcll Tldmarsh. 


ii John, as eldest son Inherited his father's estate and was 

the executor of his will. He continued his father's mercan- 
tile business in Barford until his death, dying in B., in- 
testate 15 Nov., 1689. It may be* to bis memory that the 
stone near entrance to Bartholomew Chapel is inscribed 
'* Uic Jacet quic quid mortale est Johannis Bartholomew." 
He had daughter Ann who was buried in B., 16 July, 1687. 

2 ill William, b. 1602-8; d. 18 Jan., 1680-1, in Charlestown, 


3 iv Henry, b. 1606-7; d. 22 Nov., 1692, in Sal^m, Mass. 

4 y Richard, b. ab. 1610; is supposed to have died in London 

or on a return trip Arom London to Mass. 

vi Francis, bapt. in B., 18 Feb., 1618-4; received a bequest 
by his father's will, but probably died before 1645, as he 
is not mentioned in the will of his brother Richard. 

vii Thomas, bapt. in B., 80 June, 1616; is mentioned in both 
his father's and brother Richard's wills. 

viii Abraham, is mentioned in both of said wills, but died in B., 
22 Mar., 1646-7. 

ix Sarah, bapt. in B., 14 Apr., 1628; is also mentioned in 
both wills. A Sarah Bartholomew was m. in B., 18 Apr., 
1645, to Thomas Jurden ol B. She probably died before 
8 Jan., 1G58-9, when he married, in B., Margery Hicks. 

* We naturally wonder who was the originator of Bartholomew Chapel as Buch. 
Mr. Henry F. Waters is of the opinion that the portion of St. John's Church bo des- 
ignated was built at the same time as the main church and centuries before the 
times of these membcra of the family. 

The Bartholomew family may not have been connected in any way with the erec- 
tion of tlic church or chapel, but, probably about this time, by tlieir liberality to it and 
prominence in the cliurch, they were considered entitled to use a portion of it as a 
family sepulchre and tlirough its uie as such this portion obtained its present name. 
It lias been uAcd as a burial or memorial chapel by our family exclusively and no 
other family would even now be permitted to place a monument in it. 

As there are but three tombs, we natunilly apply tliem to the three brothers who 
died there, viz. : John in 1(;43, Richard in 1G32 and William in 1684. As the chapel 
is not mentioned by said William in his will when he gives permission to the over- 
seers of hiti ebtutc to inter his remains in UioBurford Church, it indicates thatsuch 
a family connection with the church was then probably commenced but had not 
become sufficiently determined as to be considered an established custom, as he 
would have considered it if a tomb had already been erected for him. But they 
were placed theie before tlie overthrow by Cromwell, or before 1G45, when the sol- 
diers are said to have torn the inscribed brass plates fl-om them. 

And, as .)ohn Baitholoniew, during that time, was perliapH tlie most prominent 
Barlholomew in Durford, and as his name on tiie portal stone would indicate a 
prominent part in tlie establishment of the Cliapel. it is not improbable that he was 
largely instrumental in its cbtablinhment. Another fact that encourages this con- 
clusion is tliat tliis provides n monument for all heads of families who are known 
to have died tliere. 



Richard^"-* (e7bAn='»«», John^'^'\ e7()An=°«S) 

married) first, Grace , who was buried in Burford, 

16 July, 1657. He married, second, Elizabeth , 

who died in B., aged 86, and was buried there 2 May, 
1697. He was buried there 17 July, 1679. 

Mr. Bartholomew was a mercer in Burford, also its 
church warden. The mural monument (see frontispiece) 
erected by him in Bartholomew Chapel in 1668, is the 
oldest there, excepting the three large tombs and the in- 
scription in the floor, near the door, inscribed to the 
memory of John Bartholomew. He was considered a 
gentleman, being called " Mr." Was mentioned as Richard 
senior in 1672 and 1679. He inherited the family estate 
of Westall Hill from his brother William in 1661. 

Administration upon the estate of Elizabeth Bartholo- 
mew was granted to her son Richard, 15 Sept., 1699.

called, inherited from his uncle William his Burford home. 

He Is mentioned in the records as Richard junior in 1657, 

1667, 1669 and 1678. He undoubtedly erected the two large 

mural monuments at the east end of Bartholomew Chapel, 

which contain verses inscribed in memory of two of his 

children. Ch.

2 William^ (WiUiam^''''^ JohnJ^-^ John^'\) sup- 

posed to be second son* of William and Friswede Barthol- 
omew of Burford, Eng. ; was born in 1602 or 3. 

He was well educated, undoubtedly a student at the 
well known **Grammar SchooFf of Burford, and was prob- 
ably a fellow student of Peter Heylin, who became chap- 
lain to King Charles I, and afterwards sub-dean of 

*ThjU be WM the second son omitted in his father's will (see page 17) appears 
from the will of his brother Richard (see plate opposite page 53), which mentions 
him with nearlj all his brothers and sisters in the order of their births. 

The omission was possibly for the purpose of depriying the second son of his 
share; for if done because he had already received his part, his father would 
not, as he did, have studiously avoided mentioning him, and also have excluded 
him fit>m his portion of the share of any brother or sister who might die childless, 
and would probably have made William instead of Henry^his heir, in case of John, 
the eldest son's death, without issue. 

If that surmise is correct he was probably disowned on account of his religious 
ftiith, M his associations and subsequent opinions show him to have been a " dis- 

His intimate acquaintance with the noted Mrs. Anne Hutchinson (see his evidence 
page 81), his accompanying the Rev. John Lothrop and congi-egation to America, his 
association with Grovemor John Leverett as agents of Msjor Bourne ; but more 
than above, his active and earnest part in the General Court of the colony are con- 
clusive evidence of his purltanism. 

Sectarian feeling at that time was extremely bitter. The slightest opposition to 
the Established Church of England met with terrible chastisement. Heresy 
ranked worse than treason. It was common for fathers to disown their sons who 
adopted the new fklth, as such prominent examples as the father of Milton, the 
poet, and Wm. Penn, illustrate. 

It is possible that Wm. Bartholomew was a member of the Presbyterian congre- 
gation in London, and imprisoned with them ; that would have been an abundant 
reason for disowning him in his sanguine father's loyal mind. 
fThis school continued in existence for some 200 years. 



He was probably employed in his father's store, and 
must have written much to have acquired the smooth fin- 
ished hand that he subsequently wrote. 

It is not known when he went to London or when he 
married Anna Lord, sister of Robert Lord, subsequently 
his next neighbor in Ipswich ; but before September, 
1634, he had entertained the famous Mrs. Anne Hutchin- 
son at his London home. 

1634, Sept. 18. He arrived in Boston "in ship Grif- 
fin,"* in company with Rev. Zachary Symme8,f Mrs. Anne 
Hutchinson^, Rev. John Lothrop,§ and some thirty || 
of the latter's London congregation, of which he may 
have been a member. 

1634-5. Mar. 4. He was made a freeman at Boston. 
It was necessary to have first become a member of the 
church. His name is entered " Will. Bartholmew** (he 
usually omitted the second "o ;" his brothers did the same 
sometimes). Among those who took the oath with him 
were Capt. John Mason, W". Johnson, M' W°* An- 
drews, W°» Pantry, Sam'l Greenhill, Tym^ Stanley, Rich- 
ard Lord, John Prince, Edw'd Winship, Sam'l Greene, 

* Bev. Geo. E. Ellis of Boston is the authority for the name of the vessel. 

f Afterwards tlie minister at Charlestown. 

{Mrs. Annie Hutchinson was daughter of the Rev. Francis Marbnry, a puri- 
tan preacher of Lincolnshire, Eng., who was forced to seek refuge in Holland, but 
subsequently lived in London. She married Wm. Hutchinson, a man of good 
estate. She was a brilliant and able woman, who having adopted extreme theo- 
logical opinions, became by her bold advocacy of them, in the opinion of the 
authorities, dangerous to that intensely religious community, and after years of 
contention, during which the arms of her adherents were taken from them (those 
of her Ipswich followers being delivered to Wm. Bartholomew); she was banished 
from tlic colony. 

§ Was a clergyman of Kent, Bng., but renouncing his orders became pastor of 
the first Independent or Presbyterian Church in London, Eng. Their meetings 
were held clandestinely, but they were at last detected, and he and forty-two of his 
congregation imprisoned. 

Alter four years* confinement, he was only released on condition of his leaving 
the country ; he sailed at once for America, some thirty of his congi*egation accom- 
panying him. He settled at Scituate.

and Tho : iStanley. 

1634-5, Mar. 4. "M' W" Bartholomewe" and several 
others were granted privilege to trade (at Ipswich) with 
Tisiting vessels. 

1635, Apr. 25. Crranted several tractsof land in Ipswich. 

1635, May 6. "M' W" Bartholomewe" appeared at the 
General Court iit Boston, as the choBcin representative of 
the iiihabitunts of Ipswich ; he had then only been in 
America seven months. 

This was the first opportunity that the citizens of Ips- 
wich had of showing their apprcciattoii of his settling 
among them ; and the fact that they were exercising thtit 
great birthright of Americuns, the elective franchise, for 
about the first time in the hifitory of tho world, the honor

of being their choice is apparent. The citizens of Ipswich 
were some of the best in the colony, including Gov. Thos. 
Dudley, Major Daniel Dennison (subsequently the highest 
military officer in the colony), Samuel Appleton, eto., and 
Wm. Bartholomew's prominence among so many older able 
men is evidence of his superior education, family and ability. 

1635. Was appointed by the General Court with Mr. 
Dunn to ^ sett out" the land at Newbury for keeping 
sheep that came in the Dutch ships. 

1635, Sept. 1. The General Court '^ordered that Mary 

servant to Mr. Bartholmewe shall be whipt for 

runing from her mast' and shall serve him 6 weeks after 
her time is ended." 

1635, Sept. 2. **M' Willm Bartholmewe" was again 
returned to another session of the General Court, in com- 
pany with Michael Easton who was afterwards governor 
of Rhode Island five years. 

1635-6, Mar. 3. Elected deputy again. 

1636, Sept. 8. W°* Pynchon reports to the General 
Court in delivery of arms, etc., ^ To Ipswich 8 swords by 
M' W°» Bartholomew on the 7.^^ of August 1635." 

1637, Sept. 19. He was appointed on a special grand 
jury in Boston. 

At this session the trial of Mrs. Anne Hutchinson came 
up, in which William Bartholomew took a prominent part. 
The following is an extract from an order of the court, 
showing the charge against her. ^* Whereas the opinions 
and revelations of Mr. Wheelwright and Mrs. Hutchin- 
son have seduced & led into dangerous errours many of the 
people here in New England insomuch as there is just 
cause of suspicion that they, as others in Germany in for- 
mer times, may upon some revelation make some sudden 
irruption upon those that differ from them in judgment ; 
for prevention whereof " etc. 

His evidence in this case was as follows, viz. : 


**I would remember one word to Mrs. Hutohinsou 
among many others. She knowing that I did know her 
opinions, being she was at my house at London, she was 
afraid I ooncieve or loth to impart herself unto me, but 
when she came within sight of Boston and looking upon the 
meanness of the place I conceive she uttered these words. 
If she had not a sure word that England should be de- 
stroyed her heart would shake. Now it seemed to me at 
that time very strange that she should say so." 

Mrs. H. remarked. ^ I do not remember that I looked 
upon the meanness of the place nor did it discourage me, 
because I knew the bounds of my habitation were deter- 
mined " etc. 

Mr. Bartholomew continued : ** I speak as a member 
of the court, I fear that her revelations will deceave." 

Governor Sir Henry Vane. ** Have you heard any of 
her revelations ? " 

Mr. Bartholomew. "For my own part I am very sorry 
to see her now here and I have nothing against her but 
what I said was to discover what manner of spirit Mrs. 
Hutchinson is of ; only as I remember as we were once 
going through Pauls church yard* she then was very in- 
quisitive after revelations and said that she had never had 
any great thing done about her but it was revealed to her 

Mrs. Hutchinson. "I say the same thing again." 

Mr. Bartholomew. **And also that she said she was 
come to New England but for Mr. Cottons sake. As for 
Mr. Hooker (as I remember) she said she liked not his 
spirit, only she spake of a sermon of his in the Low 
Countries where in he said this — it was revealed to me 
yesterday that England should be destroyed. 

She took notice of that passage and it was very accept- 

* A street in London, Eng. 


able with her. (This passage is in print and Mr. Hooker 
avowed it afterwards at Hartford.) 

Mr. Cotton (Teacher of Boston Church). *'One thing 
let me intreat you to remember, Mr. Bartholomew, you 
never spoke anything to me." 

*'Mr. Bartholomew. No, sir* I never spake of it to 
you and therefore I desire to clear Mr. Cotton." 

Gov. '* There needs no more of that." 

Mr. Bartholomew. "Only I remember her eldest 
daughter said in the ship that she had a revelation that a 
young man in the ship should be saved, but he must walk 
in the ways of her mother." 

1637, Nov. 2. He was returned as deputy from Ips- 
wich this and the following sessions. 

1639. Was chosen to convey the instructions of the 
General Court to Captains Wiggins and Chapupenoon, 
etc., at Piscataque. 

1639, June. "Mr. Will Bartholomew granted fourty 
shillings for his journey to Piscataque." 

1639, July 22. "Mr. Bartholomew offered to enter- 
tain Mrs. Jupe (teacher of the Ipswich School) freely for 
a year without charge, if she have health, but if she 
prove sick, the charge to be borne by the publicke." 

He was granted by the town of Ipswich eighty acres, 
of land, in consideration of charges in going to courts, 
lying near Mr. Hubbard's farm. 

Was town clerk of Ipswich. Fees for same were the 
" 3** of fines for not attending meetings" (of the Established 
or Congregational Church). 

This is a striking illustration of the strong religious and 
sectai*ian character of the inhabitants. 

1641, Oct. 7. Again deputy for Ipswich. 

1641, Dec. 10. "Mr. Bartholomew" appointed with 
two others by the General Court to place valuation on 
certain property. 

1642, Apr. 6. It was voted by the town of Ipswich: 


** The Town doth trust Mr. Bartholomew to copy the old 
Waste Book, aud such other papei*s as the Recorder shall 
commit unto him, and he shall be paid for his paynes." 
The copy made in accordance with this vote is the oldest 
record possessed by the town. It is in his handwriting, 
and is a very good specimen of the chirography of the 
age. The following is a fac-simile. 


"granted to William BarthoUmew one acre In the high street Robert 
Lordes house lott east and Edward Brownes house lott west : also 
eighty acres of laud In consideration of charges in going to courtes :

1645, May 14. Appointed on a Committee to report 
on best manner of destroying " Ye wolves, w*^** are such 
r.i venous cruel creatures & daily vexatious to all ye in- 
habitants of ye coUony." 

1646, Chosen by the town to lay out way to John 
Cald wells house. 

Was one of the chosen " seven men" of the town. 

1647, May 26. " Mr. W°^ Bartholomew" deputy. 
1647. Major Daniel Dennison presented himself as 

deputy in place of Mr. Bartholomew for Ipswich ; but on 


34 TBE Babtholomew family; 

information that all ye freeman had not notice of the elec- 
tion he was not accepted. 

1648. He was one of the largest subscribers to a 
yearly compensation to Major Daniel Dennison ^*to en- 
courage him in his military helpfulness" as their leader. 

1649. Chosen one of the "Seven men "of Ipswich; 
also to lay out highways ; also allowed compensation for 
his expense in a journey to Salem about the vote. 

1650. Deputy while brother Henry was same for Salem. 

1650, Jan. 11. Appointed with Major Daniel Denni- 
son to assist the Messrs. Payne, benefactors of the town 
of Ipswich, in establishing a public school and taking 
charge of same. He was made feoffee of the school and 
continued to act in those capacities as long as he remained 
in Ipswich. The school is still in existence, and still recog- 
nizes the necessity of complying with the conditions of 
the benefaction. 

1650, June 21. Again appears as deputy for term 
commencing that date. 

Copy of an act of that term of the courte. 

" Whereas M'^. W°* Bartholmew of Ipswich and M'. 
Henry Bartholmew of Salem have tendered themselves 
to supply fifty shillings apiece in money towards the 
chardge of our commissioners of the Collonies, itt is or- 
dered by this courte, that Mr. W^ & M' Henry Barthol- 
mew shall be pajd the same out of the next country role 
in each towne of the best pay with allowance of six pence 
upon every five shillings for forbearance and other incon- 
veniences, unless it be paid in money in November next." 

The colony felt too poor to continue the Commissioners' 
Court ; the latter was an important step towards our fed- 
erated form of government and the precursor of our 
present congress. 

The great wisdom shown by William and Henry Bar- 
tholomew in this generous personal effort to continue the 


federal union of the colonies is, in light of succeeding 
history, seemingly prophetic. 

Oct. 2. Becords show he bargained for 30,000 hogs- 
head staves. 

1651, Jan. 26. Chosen on a comniittee to establish 
and regulate a grammar school. ** Shall allso consider the

field, the deeds to which his wife, Ann, signs with a mark» 

1654, June 28. Chosen treasurer of the county. 
Appointed by the General Court** to divide ye Colonies 

arms among ye shires." 

1654-5, Mar. 2. Ee-conveyed to town of Ipswich, for 
the nominal consideration of five pounds the entire tract 
granted him in 1639 ; and the town divided this and other 
tracts among its citizens as a common pasture, which has 
ever since been known as "Bartholomew Hill Pasture,"* 
and so mentioned in the town records as early as 1656 ; thus 
preserving the name of the town's early citizen and friend 
to its later inliabitants in a most pleasant manner. 

1655, May 23. Appointed with two others to go to 
Squamscott and make a just division under petition of 
Mr. Thos. Lake. Report signed W". Bartholomew. 

Was a commissioner. 

June 20. "Mr. W". Bartholomew, Mr. Sam Mav- 
erick" and others, gave bond for £2,300 (about equal to 
the present value of $50,000) for appearance of Mr. John 

* BArtholomcw Hill Pasture is situated two miles west of the centre of Ipswich 
\i\ltLgey and contains nearly a sqiiai e mile. It is covered with excellent grass, and 
has a single row of willow trees through its centre, crossing the tops of the peaks 
of its double liill. The heights of thene peaks are 201 and 201 feet. 

Tills pasture is divided Into numerous " cow rightP.*' each of which represents 
about two acres, and is held in common by the owners. These **cow rights" are

Major Nehemiah Bourne of London, who had been a 
major in Rainsborough's regiment in Cromwell's over- 
throw of Charles I, appointed John Leverett and William 
Bartholomew his agents in Boston. 

Mr. Leverett was one of the grand men of Massachu- 
setts' colonial history, representative, speaker, major 
general, assistant, deputy governor and governor many 
years, agent of the colony in England, etc. *'No man," 
says Savage, "in our country, ever filled more important 
offices, nor with happier repute." 

Mr. Bartholomew's association with Governor Lev- 
erett, by Major Bourne, who knew both well, having lived 
in Boston, is proof, if such were wanting, that William Bar- 
tholomew was both a business-like and honorable man.

General Court to settle certain troubles and divisions be- 
tween the towns. 

1656, May 22. "M"^ Willjam Bartholomew" appointed 
with Major W"* Hawthorn and Mr. Sam'l Hall to treat 
with the inhabitants of Haniden and Strawbery Bancke 
etc., and to conclude what they judge meet between the 
towns and persons. 


1656, Oct. 14. Appointed to assist in laying out 1,000 
acres of land for M' William Hubbard, Sen., of Ipswich. 

1657, May 6. **Mr W"» Bartholomew'' (the "M^** is 
mentioned so often, because it indicated the social posi- 
tion he held. Ministers, military officers and those of 
superior standing in the community were called Mr., but 
the most of the deputies of the General Court, the highest 
body in the colony, were plain John, etc.) appointed a 
commissioner to settle troubles concerning boundaries of 
Salisbury and Hampton. 

1658, Still owner of his High street lot in Ipswich. 

1659, July 21. W". Bartholomew, of Ipswich, mer- 
chant, purchases of Robert Nash, and wife Sarah, house 
and lot in Boston, bounded as follows : west by Joseph 
Peck, east by W". Franklin, southwest by W™. Make- 
piece and northeast by Mill Creek. 

This is the last mention of him as of Ipswich, and the 
date of filing the above for record in Boston, 15 March, 
1660, probal)ly is about the date of his removal to Bos- 
ton, as he is mentioned there within a year after as a mer- 
chant, and as living on the above described property. 

1662, May 1. Appointed overseer of mill of W". 
Brown of Boston. 

Have not been able to learn the relationship, if any, 
existing between W™ Brown of Boston and Edward 
Brown of Ipswich who called W™. Bartholomew "brother." 

It was probably at this time that W™. Bartholomew, 
Jr., learned the mill business. 

1665, May 3. His name heads a petition of fourteen 
prominent citizens of Boston, requesting that the commis- 
sioners see that the estate of Samuel Maverick, Junior, of 
Boston, be properly settled. 

1665, Nov. 4. Appointed to assist in inventoring 
Samuel Maverick Jun''® Estate, 


1666. Treasurer of County. 

1666, May 23. Appointed with two others to provide 
relief for some 250 French from St. Christopher's, at 
public charge ; authorizing them to make contracts with 
masters of ships for their transportation at the expense 
of the colony. 

1667. He assisted in drawing Elizabeth Robinson's 
will, and in after litigation he testified as follows : ^That 
the said Elizabeth came often to the house of this deponant 
diners times weeping to him, to get her will formerly 
drawne to be altered & to be new drawne. My business 
being more than ordinary, I could not in some weekes 
attend it, but some time before the date of her last will, 
went to M' Wiswall at her request, and wee together tooke 
this her last will from her owne mouth wording it as meetly 
as we might, but in nothing altering the sence of her mind 
expressed to vs. 

I doe not remember wee dictated, anything to her of it, 
but only when she was speaking of some bequeathed to 
her kindred in England wee wished her to insert that clause, 
viz*, if the estate might afford ; & whereas she had drawne 
two formes of wills before, I doe account this will the most 
rationall of them all, & the Reasons she gave for altering 
her former will, were upon rationall grounds, & 1 doe 
affirme to my best vnderstanding, that at the drawing & 
at the signing & sealing of this her last will & Testament 
she was of a composed & deposing mind. Also she de- 
clared herself severall times to this deponant, after the 
will was signed & finished, to be well sattisfyed & quieted 
in her mind, w^ indeed seemed restless until it was done ; 
further this deponant testifyeth, that hee said deponant 
meeting her the Euening before she sickened, going from 
her House, it being a very cold Euening, asked her why 
shee would hazard her health soe, as to goe foi*th in soe 


cold an Euening, she answered mee, that she was going 
to a priuate meeting. And to my best remembrance I 
then asked her as I had done vpon occation at times before, 
whether shee heard with vnderstanding at the meetings 
& shee said Yea, shee praysed God for it. Taken vpon 
oath the 29 of the 7 : 1667." 

1668, Sept. 1. **Edmund Gibbon, now in Boston, haue 
appointed M^ Humfry Hodges & M' Willm Bailhomew, 
merch*** my true and lawful attornies." 

He was frequently called upon to make and witness 
wills, inventory estates, oversee estates and persons, 
made feoffee of property in trust, etc. 

In 1668 he is mentioned in connection with Mr. Hum- 
fry Hodges as merchants, and in 1677 in same connection 
with Joshua Atwater ; they may have been his partners. 

1679, Nov. 25. With his wife Ann, he makes a deed 
to his nephew Heni-y Bartholomew of all his property 
real and personal. It is a peculiar deed and there was 
probably some urgent reason for making it that is unex- 

"Mr William Bartholomew late of Boston, now sojourn- 
ing with Mr Green in Charlestoune deceased this life 18"^ 
day of January 1680" (1681, new style) . (From Charles- 
town records.) 

No will is found ; he probably made none as he hud 
apparently divided his property among his children before 
his death. The inventory of his remaining estate is as 
follows :

w™ Bartholomew deced Samuel Phlpps 

& took oath to ye Inventory Nicholas Meade 

His grave in Phipps Street Cemetery, Charlestown, is 
in a prominent position adjoining thkt of John Harvard, 
the benefactor of Harvard College ; the inscription on the 
gravestone reads "William Bartholmew ag* 78 y" dec* 
Jan^ 18^^ 1680." 

William Bartholomew was of good parentage. He 
enjoyed unusual educational advantages and probably re- 
ceived a practical business training in his father's store, 
which, if conformity can be expected with his will, must 
have been conducted with great care and thoroughness. 

Leaving the paternal roof we find him before the age 


of thirty-two in London, married, keeping house and 
probably in some mercantile employment. 

The London of that time was as gay and alluring to 
youths as that profligate age could make it; vulgarity, 
yice and crime were countenanced and even encouraged. 
Under these circumstances the young man who chose 
his company from a persecuted and derided, but devoutly 
religious sect, showed a strong and noble character. 

Surrounded by oppression, and perhaps disowned by 
his father, it is not strange that such a spirit should wish 
to breathe a freer air, should brave the dreaded ocean 
and join the Puritan settlers in the wilds of America. 

The facts given show the high standard he maintained 
in his adopted home. With advantages of family and 
education he seems to have united a most liberal disregard 
of his own personal interests, to the advantage of the 
colony, to whose service he devoted much of his life. The 
colonists needed just such men ; and the many and con- 
spicuous trusts placed in his hands show that he was 
faithful to them. 

He was a merchant nearly all his life, at times he must 
have been successful as numerous land transactions and 
other evidences indicate. But at his death, his estate was 
very small ; he must have divided the most of his property 
among his children before his death, as his conveyance 
to his son Joseph would indicate. He died at the home 
of his only daughter. The only books mentioned among 
his personal eflects, "a Bible in Q^" and "Clark's Martyr- 
ologie," are a commentary upon his life. 

Ho lived in an age of wonderful changes, and his was 
a long and eventful career. K it could be reviewed by 
us in all its strong lights and shades, it would be more 
interesting than the most fascinating tale of fiction. 

He was the emigrant ancestor of all the Bartholomews 
of this family in the United States, and it is hoped that 



knowledge of his force of character and sterling worth 
may encourage some of his weaker descendants to be more 
worthy of so noble a sire. 

Mrs. Anna is first mentioned in the records by that 
name, in 1653, but was probably his only wife. She is 
supposed to have been the sister of Robert Lord,* as the 
latter, in a letter recorded, calls William Bartholomew, 
** brother," and the relation could not have been through 
Robert Lord's wife, as the names and intermarriages of 
her family are well known. 

She may have also held that relation to Edward Brown 
or his wife Faith, as Edward Brown in hi» will in 1659, 
also mentions his ''brother Bartholomew." 

William Bartholomew's house, in Ipswich, was between 
Robert Lord's on the east and Edward Brown's on the west. 

She survived her husband and died in Charlestown, 29 
Jan., 1682-3. Her gravestone, still standing in Charles- 
town, is inscribed A. B. died Jan., 1682-3. Children: 

1 Mary, in., first, by Major Daniel Dennison, In Gloucester, 
24 Dec, 1652 (Salem records say 1657). Mathew, son of 
Mathew Whipplef of Ipswich, who died 20 Oct., 1667. 
She m. 2nd, as liis second wife, Jacob, son of Elder John 
Greene J of Charlestown. By his first wife Elizabeth 
(Long) he had children, Jacob, b. II Oct., 1654; Joseph, 
who d. 26 Aug., 1657 and John. He was of the artillery 
company, 1650, freeman 1650, representative 1677 and 
town clerk of C. In 1667 Mary, joined by her husband, 
made her father her attorney to settle with John Whipple 
her right to property left her by her former husband. ThU 
power was not recorded until 1676. Her children were : 
1 Mathew Whipple, b. 20 Dec, 1657; posthumous. 

* Robert Lord married, abont 1630, Mary, dnu. ofSam'l and Mary (Ward) Watte 
of Wethersfield, Es^cx, Eng. Ho emigrated ttom London to Ipswich, in 1034. Wat

Mrs. Elizabeth born about 1622, died 1 Sept., 1682, 
»t. 60 ; her gravestone is still standing in the old Charter 
Street burying ground, where his remains were probably 
also interred. She was daughter of Thomas Scudder of 

He was, undoubtedly, as well as his brother William, 
a student at the Burford Grammar School, and brought 
up to the mercantile trade in his father's store. 

He is said* to have been a London merchant before 
leaving England. He arrived in Salem, Mass., 7 Nov., 
1635. Became a member of its First Church, and was 
made a freeman of the colony, 17 May, 1637. 

1638, Dec. 26. Granted 50 acres of land in Salem. 

1639, Oct. 9. Granted 100 acres of land in Salem. 
1642, June 10. Granted 100 acres of upland and 10 

acres of meadow in Salem. 

Greene, a relative, ])erhapfl, or apprentice. This w. was, it is said, dau. of Rev. 
Francis Johnson (po^sibly related to Capt. I^aac Johnson, bco page .50), a Puritan 
of e»«lnence, who had fle<l to Amsterdam. This John Green was sergeant, ruling 
Elder (the only one Cburlcstown ever had), Town Clerk, S(^lectnian 12 years. His 
will, 21 Apr., 1658, names w. Joanna, wid« of John Shapwell of Ipswich." (Savage.) 


One of these probably included what has ever since been 
known As "Bartholomew Pond," which is a beautiful lake 
containing ten to twelve acres, surrounded by "Bartholo- 
mew Eocks" and woods. It is situated about four miles 
from the city of Salem, on the old Boston road. It is a 
great satisfaction to the members of this family that the 
two earliest members of the family in America should have 
their names so pleasantly and permanently preserved to 
the places for which they devoted so much of their long 
and useful lives. 

1645, May 14. "M' Hen : Bartholomew" took his seat, 
with Captain William Hawthorne, for the first time in the 
General Court, as deputy for the town of Salem, then one 
of the most important places in the colony. He continued 
to be chosen their representative, the highest office they 
had to confer, nearly all the balance of his long life, serving 
in that capacity thirty-nine terms. He was appointed upon 
its most important committees, and has left evidence, 
through the record of his votes, that he was one of the 
few, and frequently almost the only, unsectarian, unprej- 
udiced, liberal law maker in the coui-t ; doing all that was 
in his power to overcome the prejudice against other 
churches and sects, which so marred the serious grand 
character of the Puritiin settlers. 

On the first day of his service as Salem's representative, 
he illustrated his generous nature by assuming, with Mr. 
Hawthorne, his fellow-deputy, the payment of a debt to 
the colony for the transportation of a poor child. 

The same day he was made one of a committee to audit 
"ye accompts of ye Capt of ye Castle." 

1646, May 4. He, with four others, dissented to the 
vote of fine passed against Dr. Childs, Mr. Samuel Mav- 
erick, and others, because they had petitioned the king 
to relieve them from paying a tax to support the Indepen- 
dent or Presbyterian Church established by the colonists. 

1647, Oct. 10. Wasactingjudgeofprobateio Essex Co. 


1649, May 7. Appointed on a committee to draw up 
a law for "dividing y* sheres & treasury in each sheir, 
bringing all Courts to an acquality for power & nomber, 
y* what may be y® county rased & the pVudece of the neg- 
ative vote prevented." A most important trust. 

1650. Clerk of the Probate Court of Essex Co. 
1650, June 21. He and his brother William, patriotically 

advanced the colony money to keep the Commissioners 
Court in existence. 

1650, Oct. 16. He dissents to the following, which 
was enacted. 

** An act to burn a book written by W™ Pinchon in N. E. 
Gent, entitled The Meritorious Price of our Eedemption, 
Justification &c. 

1*' because they utterly dislike and detest it. 

2** That it be answered by one of the rev. elders. 

3 That the author be summoned to appear before the 
General Court to answer for same. 

4^^ That said book be burned by the Executioner . . 
in the market place in Boston, on the morrow, immediately 
after the lecture." 

Mr. John Norton (Elder) was instructed to answer the 

Voting against this ridiculous tyranny reflects credit on 
Mr. Bartholomew, 

This shows that his generosity extended to all sects, as 
in previously mentioned dissent the parties fined were 
Episcopalians, but in this case even wider from that church 
than the Puritans. 

1651, May 2. He dissents to an act punishing Rev. 
Marmaduke Mathews for suffering himself to be ordained 
by a church after he had expressed opinions contrary to 
the belief of the elders ; condemning him to appear before 
them and humbly acknowledge "his siinie" or suffer a fine 
of £10. Mr. Mathews refused to acknowledge any "sinne" 



and the fine was levied. The church was also fined for 
ordaining him. Mr. Bartholomew's liberal and wise views 
apparently met with the hearty approval of his Salem 
constituents, as he was returned each successive term. 

1651. He, with others, refused to endorse the Book of 
Discipline, a scheme of divinity which had been devised 
as a standard by which to enforce uniformity in mattei*8 
of religion. 

1651, "9 mo." (Nov.) "Henry Bartholomew licensed 
to sell strong water by retail at sale." At that time only 
the best men in the community were allowed that privilege. 

1662, May 7. "Mr Henry Bartholomew" appointed to 
consider petition for further power for well ordering of 
trade and tradesman and the suppressing of vices in Boston. 

1663, May 27. On committee to answer the king's letter 
concernin«: the extension "of the liberiv of certain of the 
inhabitants in point of elections." 

This was one of the king's attempts to choke the growing 
liberties of the colonists. 

1663, Oct. 21. On committee to consider granting the 
citizens of Boston more power over trade, etc. 

1663. He was larg^elv instrumental in the erection of 
the old mills on South River, Salem. (Query. Did his 
nephew, William Bartholomew, Jr., assist in this?) 

1665, Aug. 1. "Mr. Henry Bartholomew on the request 
& choice of the troope at Salem is allowed & approved of 
for their cornett."* 

1667, Oct. 17. On committee to consider and report 
best manner of settling trouble betTifeen Nipmuck and 
Narragansett tribes of Indians. 

1668, Apr. 24. He was made Commissioner for Salem. 

1669, Mar. Depositions of "Jeffrey Massey and Ed- 
mund Batter both more than 60 year" and of "Henry 

* An officer who commanded a troop of horse. 


Bartholomew aged about 62 " and of ^ John Glover aged 
about 38 years.** 

This is the authority for stating that he was born about 
1607. Felt appears to have been the first to make the 
statement, oft repeated, that Mr. Bartholomew was born m 
1600, and therefore aged 92 at death, in 1692. No evi- 
dence to sustain him has been found, but everything points 
to his having been younger than his brother William, born 
in 1602--3, as William is mentioned first where they are 
mentioned together. Also his age at time of his marriage 
to his eighteen-year-old wife is much more likely to have 
been thirty-three than forty. But the above deposition 
and order of mention are the best authorities known. 

1672, Oct. 23. On committee to go to Newbuiy and 
hear and settle troubles there. 

1673, May 7. On committee to consider and report 
on three vital questions concerning the veto power allowed 
by the patent to the colony. 

1674, Oct. 7. On committee to examine and report 
on town rights of commoners and noncommouers of Mar- 
blehead. Report signed Hen. Bartholmew. 

1679-80. He sold to Timothy Lindall, the house which 
he had bought in 1655 (?), which stood on or near the 
site of present Pickraan house in Salem. 

lie also bought, in 1651, and held in 1655, a place on 
8t. Peter's Street, back of the present Essex House, and 
another house on "Burying Point Lane," now Liberty 

1679, 28 May. On committee to advise the Inhabitants 
of Chebacco about the building of a meeting house, choosing 
site and minister. 

1684, Oct. 24. On committee to hcjir and report on 
trouble between the "Praying Indians" and the inhabitants 
of Marll)or()Ugh . 

1685, May 6. This was his last term, it being just forty 


years since he first took his seat in the legislative and 
judicial body of the colony. One of his last duties, at the 
age of nearly eighty, was a revision of the laws of the col- 
ony, which he probably understood better than any man 
then living. 

Mr. Bartholomew was a Salem merchant as early as 1643 
and probably the most of his life. 

"As a town clerk he was faithful and correct . . .'* 

He practised much in the courts, and was often con- 
sulted in the settlement of deceased persons' estates. 

"At one time he held by mortgage deed a tract of land 
8 miles square on the Merrimac River, conveyed to him 
April 17, 1652, by an Indian Chief." (Perley Derby.) 

Henry Bartholomew possessed one of those well-rounded 
characters, which, aided by education and careful training, 
make the leading men of all ages. 

His nature was generous, hence the devotion of his 
mature life to the service of the colony. He was broad 
minded and liberal in a bigoted age and among a naiTow- 
minded people, and the value of his wise and extended 
efforts to enlarge the federal and decrease the theocratic 
power, which then ruled, cannot be estimated. 

It is a sad conclusion, but seems a fact, that his only 
descendants bear other names, being only the offspring of 
his daughters Hannah, Abigail and Elizabeth. 

" Mr Henry Bartholomew according to w' his son Henry 
gave in und"^ his hand arrived att N. England y* 7 Nov**' 
1635, and did take up his dwelling in Salem, in New 
England uutill y« 22 of Nov»»' 1692 & y° departed this life 
about nine or ten of y® clocke in y® morning w®** was 57 
years contiimance in sd Salem." (Salem Town Records.)

This is the best evidence we have that the brothers of 
Henry' Bartholomew were then deceased, and coupled 
with the fact that no subsequent mention of them can be 
found in the records of that section, which have been 
most diligently searched, the probability of their early 
decease is considered quite certain.

about 1610 ; is first meDtioned in his father's will in 1634, 
probably of Burford, England. 

He was in Salem, Mass., as early as 1637, admitted 
freeman in 1641 ; joined the artillery company in 1643. He 
was granted ten acres of land in Salem, 29 Nov., 1637. 

2 May, 1645, he was in London, Eng., and became a 
witness to a power of attorney from Joseph Owfield, of 
London, and Richard Crossing of Exeter, to David Yale 
of Boston. He was a trader between Boston and London. 

6 Jan., 1645-6, he wrote a letter (see fac-simile opposite) 
which, owing to his decease during the trip he was then 
starting upon, became his will and was found in the pro- 
bate records of Salem, Mass. This letter has been of 
great assistance in identifying the family in England. 
It is also extremely interesting as an illustration of the 
intensely religious character of the Puritans and particu- 
larly of this family. It also shows that the writer had 
good business capacity and a kind heart.

William Hathorne 

Jefferes Masser 


5 Joseph^ ( WiUiam}j William^) born, probably in 
Ipswich, in 1637-8; was still residing with his father 
in Boston, 16 Nov., 1667, when he gave the following 
testimony : 

^Joseph Bartholomew, aged 29 years or thereabouts, 
concerning the last will & Testament of Elizabeth Rob- 
inson, bearing date, 21 Aug., 1666, . . this deponent 
Testifyeth that the said Elizabeth came diuers times to 
this deponants Fathers house uery earnestly desiring to 
haue her will drawne, as not willing to haue her former 
Will stand, but to alter it. After many times coming, 
the Father of this deponant on a day brought a Coppie 
drawne as from her, & written to my best Remembrance, 
bee said by M' Wiswall & himself, the which this de- 
ponent wrought out & meeting with the widdow Robin- 
son afterwards she exprest her selfe uery joy full that it 
was done & uery well satisfied with it & owned it as her 
will & Testament, after Goodman Bishops hand was at 
it : soe when shee had soe Owned it, to bee her Act & 
deed I set my hand also ; at which time I tooke her to bee 
of a disposing mind, only she had a great defect in vtter- 
ingher mind, vntil she had tyme to make her mind known 
by degrees, & further saith not." 

He is mentioned as a mariner of Boston, 18 Nov., 1674, 
when he makes his " friends Sam'l Walker of Boston, 
Merchant, and Capt. John Green of Sudbury and John 
Hay ward of Boston, scrivener, his lawful attorneys ;" 
recorded 15 June, 1676. 

The last mention found of him is in a conveyance, 
dated 26 May, 1693, of Boston property deeded him by 
his father, 20 July, 1659, which mentions him as of 
*• London, Mariner.^ 

As he was then fifty-five to fifty-six years of age, it is 


probable that he had children, and that descendants of his 
are still living in England. 

6 William^ ( TFtKfamS* Williamy) bom probably in 

^"^^^-"^-^ -P^ 'y)CC^^^^hui^ (1697 to will.) 

Ipswich, in 1640-1, married in Roxbury, Mass., 17 
Dec, 1663, Mary, daughter of Captain Isaac and Elizabeth 
(Porter) Johnson, and granddaughter of John Johnson 
who held the title of " Surveyor of all ye Kings armies 
in America." Both the grandfather and father represented 
Roxbury many years in the General Court and held high, 
social rank. Capt. Isaac Johnson was killed 19 Dec, 
1675, in the famous " Narragansett Fort Fight," leading 
his men over the bridge (a fallen tree) into the Indians 

He died in the spring of 1697. Mrs. Marj*^ was bom 
24 April, 1642, and was living, in 1705, in Branford, 

Lieut. William Bartholomew seems to have early taken 
a practical view of life as is shown by his learning the 
carpenters' trade. 

In 1662, he probably received his first experience in the 
mill business, which he afterwards carried on extensively, 
as his father was that year made overseer of William 
Brown's mill in Boston ; and he may have subsequently 

•Positive proof that he was son of William BarthoIomeWi of Ipswieh, has not 
been found, but all evidence obtained fitvors that oonolnsion. 


(1663) assisted bis uncle Henry in building tbe Old Soutb 
Mills in Salem. 

Tbe last of June» 1663, be was apparently staying about 
ten miles from Medfieldy^Mass., and was perbaps engaged 
as a carpenter or millwrigbt at Robert Heusdale's mill. 
He tbere took pai-t in a wolf bunt and witb otbers bad 
some trouble witb a party of Indians wbo wanted liquor 
wbicb was refused tbem. His testimony given 5 April » 
1664, is as follows : 

^ Jobn Levin aged twenty ffour yeares or tbereabout & 
William Bartbolomew aged twenty tbree botb sworne tes- 
tiffie & saye tbat beinge at a ffarme at Mr. Ricbard Park- 
ers al>out tenn myles ffrom Medfield about tbe latter end 
of June last did see a company of Indians come to ye 
ffarme afforsaid & did request to bave Liquors ffor saving 
of some wolves but Natbaniell Mott w^ not give y™ any 
but tendered y™ a pecke of Come apeece to every y™ 
ffor tbeir paines in deliveringe tbe wolves but tbey re- 
fused & were so earnest ffor Liquors that one of the de- 
ponents was fforced to thrust them out of doores & told 
ym yt ^ijgy vvould uot fac oi'dcrly he would laye handes 

J • 

The record of bis marriage mentions him as a " Car- 
penter" of Roxbury. In 1674 he or his father resided a 
short time in Marblehead. 

20 Feb., 1676-7. Wm. Bartholomew, carpenter, of 
Roxbury, and wife Mary, sell a twenty-five acre lot, 
bouse, etc., in Roxbury. He was at Deerfield before 
King Philip's war, purchasing the housclot previously 
belonging to Peter Woodward, which he sold in 1685. 

At the time of the noted raid of the Indians on Hat- 
field, 19 Sept., 1677, be was there with bis family, and 
probably assisting in the erection of the building then 
l>eing raised. His daughter Abigail, aged four, wiis taken 


with twelve others and carried through the forests, over 
the Lakes, into Canada and kept eight mouths ; but finally, 
ransomed, 23 May, 1678, with others by the payment of 

" Att Eleven of the Clock in ye day time the enemy 
came upon Hatfield (When ye greatest part of the men 
belonging to the Towne were difq)ersed into ye meadows) 
and Shott down 3 men within ye Towne fortification, 
killed and took women & children & burnt houses & 
Barnes ye number of which are as followeth" 

Killed (male) 12; taken 13, including "A child of W* 
Barthemew' ;" wounded 4. (From Sam'l Partridge's 
letter to the General Court.) 

He is mentioned in Deerfield in 1678. 

May 5, 1679. The town records of Branford, Conn., 
contain the following resolution : "The town have agreed 
to give unto William Bartholomew twenty acres of land 
as convenient as may be provided it be not prejudicial to 
ye Town provided also he do perfect his agreement with 
the Town Comt®® concerning building a mill in Branford 
and build and settle in the town. And Cap" Topping, 
Tho' Harrison, Robert Hoott & W" Hoadley or any 3 of 
them are appointed for a comt*® to treat and bargain with 
Mr. Bartholomew concerning building and upholding a 
mill in Branford and do give them full power to act in ye 
behalf of ye town." 

Mr. Bartholomew must have gone there that summer as 
the committee, 5 Jan., 1679, was authorized to lay out to 
W™ Bartholomew land below Guilford Eoad, and the fol- 
lowing spring, 18 March, 1679-80, the town further 
granted him the "piece of upland & meadow lying be- . 
tween the brook that carried ye water from ye old mill 
and the stream that carried away ye waste water." 

Feb. 7, 1681. "The Towne have given liberty to W" 



Bartholomew to set up a saw mill upon the great river 
about the foot of the great hill and the town have given 
him liberty to make use of what timber he shall sea 
raise for sawing half a mile below said mill and so on both 
sides of the river and along his mill as fiur as he shall see 

March 11, 1683. Seventeen acres were laid out to him.

the bay to do his utmost indeavor to procure a minister

minister to carry on the worke of the ministry in Branford 
and to take the best advice that may be for the attaining of 
the end aforesaid and do give them full power to act for 
and in the behalf of the towne." 

1685. W*" Bailholomew and John Frisbie laid out and 
staked the highway to Guilford. Elected Surveyor again, 
— and Fence Viewer. Appointed to lay out and value 
certain tracts of land. 

March 28, 1686-7. Another Mill agreement. 
Jan. 2, 1687. Town object to his dam and want him 
to build a bridge. Ten acres more are laid out to him. 


April 27, 1687. The town of Woodstock is anxious 
to obtain his services and passes the following resolution : 

" The Company of Planters att a Gen" Meeting did then 
choose Edw** Morris, John Chandler, Sen""., Nath" John- 
son & Joseph White, to treatt and agree with William 
Bartholomew of Branford for the building of a corn mill 
on as reasonable terms as they can, which teims the Pub- 
lique is to stand to ; and each man to here his equal pro- 
portion according to his home lott." 

"The Committee abovesaid did in the Town's behalf 
give and grant to W™ Bartholomew above said, on condi- 
tion of his building a corn mill on the falls below Muddy 
Brook ponds and finding the Town with grinding good 
meal clear of gritt as other towns have generally found 

these following particulars 

1 the place at the aforesaid falls to sett a mill w^ the 
benefit of the streams. 

2 A fifteen acre home lott with 15 acre right of up- 
land and a thirty acre right of meadow. 

3 an hundred acres of upland ..." 

The Woodstock people were anxious to have the com- 
pany of his good wife Mary and passed the following : 

Sep. 29i ** It was granted att a full meeting of the 
proprietors : that William Bartholomew should have 
twenty acres of land .... provided he bring his 
wife & settle upon it by next June following : . . " 

Tracts were also granted to each of his sons Isaac and 

Mar. 12, 1688. He was appointed on a "Com®® to 
settle highways." 

May 21, 1688. Allowed more cow pasture in Branford. 

July 13, 1689. " W" Bartholomew Sr." was commis- 
sioned by the governor of the colony of Massachusetts, 
ensign of the '*New Roxbury Company." 


Feb. 12, 1689-90. He, with three others, petitions the 
General Court for town privileges. The petition was 
granted and "Nepmuck" or "New Roxbury " was called 

Oct. 1690. He was made chairman of a committee to 
build the minister a house ; also, Nov. 1690, one of the 
first selectmen of the town. 

May 21, 1691. ""W^ Bartholomew being presented 
for Lieutenant and Benjamin Sabin for ensign of the 
Military Company in Woodstock the said persons are 
approved and confirmed in their respective ofiices." 
[Mass. Court Roc, Vol. 6, p. 184.] 

June 8, 1692. "Mr. W™ Bartholomew " appeai-ed as 
the representative of Woodstock, Sufiblk County, at the 
Grand General Court or Assembly at Boston. It was the 
only one ever held by the colony and called on an ex- 
tremely important occasion. It was also the occasion of 
the first election in Woodstock for representative, making 
it a conspicuous honor to Mr. Bartholomew, as the town 
was noted for its able citizens. 

' 1690-1694. At the several divisions of the public 
land he Wiis a member of the committee making the same 
and received with his sons Isaac and William their shares. 

May 16, 1695. He was appointed with Benj. Sabin to 
join the Roxbury Committee " in staking and setting the 
divided line between the inhabitants of Roxbury & 

Spring of 1697. Mr. Bartholomew died, probably in 
Woodstock ; and it is supposed that his remains lie buried 
in Woodstock Hill Cemetery, adjoining the graves of his 
sons Joseph and Benjamin. Two rough unmarked stones 
at the head of graves probably show his and his son John's 
last resting places. 

Lieutenant William Bartholomew was eminently a 


practical man, and of good family and education ; his father 
a merchant, he preferred to learn the trade of a carpenter. 
After a life of several years in the metropolis of the col- 
ony he chose the rough and hazardous but useful lot of a 
frontier settler. 

He was unfortunate in settling in Hatfield as the war 
with the savages during the several succeeding years made 
that locality uninhabitable. 

He suffered severely by this war and finally seeking a 
more peaceable section in which to use his energies, made 
arrangements with the town of Branford, Ct., to build 
and maintain mills there. 

Nearly forty years of his life had passed, the latter 
being unfortunately devoted to settlements in which it 
was impossible to succeed. In Branford his force of 
character had a better field ; and during the eight years 
spent there, besides building two mills and opening two 
farms, he was constantly called into service by the citizens 
and filled many important trusts. 

But although nearly fifty years old and very comfortably 
situated, his ambitipn required him to accept the very gen- 
erous offer of his old Roxbury acquaintances, who had 
settled in Woodstock, and there build and maintain mills 
for them. 

His popularity was even greater in Woodstock than it 
had been in Branford. They conferred upon him nearly 
every honor at their disposal : making him selectman, 
chairman of the committee to build the minister's house, 
first representative to the General Court, and Lieutenant 
commanding all subject to military service in the town ; 
these honors, conferred by those who had known him 
from boyhood, are ample evidences of his superior 

The social excellence of his family is certified to most 


emphatically by the oflfer of a land grant if he would 
bring them there to live. 

He died at the age of fifty-seven ; and, judging by the 
age of his father and descendants his death must have been 
greatly hastened by some cause, possibly exposure during 
his trying time^ in the Indian wars. 

Like his father he was ancestor of all the Bartholomews 
of this familv in America. He as well as his father and 
uncle Henry must have been men of rare executive abil- 
ity, which combined with their practical sense and high 
moral and social standard made them in their various 
spheres the eminent men which they undoubtedly were. 

Few men have proved more worthy of being re- 
membered and revered by their descendants.

died before 1697, without issue, as inferred from his

8 Isaao^ ( William,^ William,^ William) ^ bom 1 Nov., 

Cy^ (1724.) 

1664, in Roxbury, Mass. ; married about 1694, Rebecca 
Frisbie ;* daughter of John* (Edward^) and Ruth (Bow- 
ers) Frifibie; born in Branford, 14 Nov., 1679; died in 
North Branford, 18 May, 1738. Her age according to 
the gravestone, which is poorly marked, is ''60" or ''62,*' 
but both would be wrong; her husband, Isaac Bartholo- 
mew's, standing adjoining hers, has his age also wrong. 
He died in North Bi-anford 25 Oct., 1727. 

"Mr. Isaac Bartholomew," as he is mentioned in the 
records, accompanied his father to Woodstock in 1687, 
where he apparently remained until 1693 or later, but was 
in Branford in 1697. He returned to Woodstock and con- 
tinued there until about 1703 when he returned again to 
Branford and remained. 

He received a number of grants of land in both Bran- 
ford and Woodstock. The latter portion of his life he 
resided on "Stony river," now called "Farm river," near 
the line of Branford and East Haven. 

In 1704, he represented Wm. Hoadley in the settlement 
of a land trouble. He joined the church in Branford 31 
Mar., 1725. 

His estate was probated 6 Nov., 1727. Mention is 
made of widow Rebecca ; children, William, Mary, Isaac, 
Rebecca, Elizabeth, Abraham (sat. 19), Josiah (sat. 17), 

* Reasons for thinking her the wife of Isaac Bartholomew are, the fdxX that she 
was the only Rebecca known to have been living in Branford wiio could have mar- 
ried him, that her children were named fW>m her brothers and sisters, that her 
brother was their guardian after her husband's death, and that every other fact 
known agrees; still this may possibly be wrong. 


Abigail (eet. 15), Freelove (eet. 10), and Jerusha (8Bt. 4). 
Lieut. John Granniss, Edward Frisbie and Ebenezer Fris- 
bie made the appraisement which mentions large bodies of 
land in Woodstock and Branford and homesteads in each 
place and in North Haven. 

His and his wife's gravestones stand in the small ceme- 
tery near the church in North Branford. 

He was the father of one of the largest branches of the 
family, a practical and successful farmer, and a highly 
respected citizen. On Mrs. Rebecca's estate, administra- 
tion was granted to her son Isaac, 4 July, 1738.

daughter of Samuel Frisbie, of Brauford ; and died be-

Mr. Bartholomew managed his father's mills in Branford 
after his removal to Woodstock and after his father's death 
owned and operated them in company with his brother 

This partnership continued until 11 Jan., 1711-2 when 
they divided the properties ; Andrew turning his atten- 
tion principally to farming, purchasing large quantities of 
real estate in Branford, Wallingford and adjoining towns. 

He removed to Wallingford before 1729 and continued 
there the remainder of his life. He was a prominent man 
in Branford and frequently called upon to sustain its 
trusts. They joined the Brauford church, she in 1700 and 
he in 1701. Children:

bly in Branford in 1679 ; married, first, in Woodstock, 28 
Jan., 1702-3, Elizabeth, daughter of Deacon Edward* 
Morris (Edward^) and his wife Elizabeth, daughter of 
Henry Bowen (by his wife Elizabeth, daughter of Captain 
Isaac Johnson of Roxbury). She died 12 Mar., 1703-4. 
He married, second, in Branford, Mary '*(Mercy)" 
widow of Ebenezer Frisbie of Branford. She dying in 
B. 11 Dec, 1732, he married, third, in Woodstock, 2 
Jan., 1738-9, Hannah, daughter of John Abbott and 
widow of Daniel Abbott; and died between the 16 Apr., 
and 2 July, 1753, set. 74. 


John Bartholomew remained in Woodstock until after 
his first wife's death, where the land records frequently 
mention him. 

In 1715 he was made a freeman in Branford where he 
had previously married his second wife. After her death 
he returned to Woodstock, taking letter from the Bran- 
ford church by which he was admitted to the church in W. 
6 Nov., 1738. 

He was a farmer and late in life a weaver. In Mar., 
1745, he was made tithing man. 

Shortly before his death ho made a division of his prop- 
erty by a deed dated, 16 Apr., 1753, endorsements on 
which, made 2 Jilly following, mention his being deceased. 
It mentions wife Hannah "(for her Care and Trouble for 
looking after me)" son Enos, Enos' son John and daughter 
Mary, his daughters Elizabeth (wife of Joseph Darin) 
and Sarah wife of Nathan^ Manmon ; and to his wife's 
daughter Sarah Abbott, "whatever I have belonging to the 
weaving trade." It is possible that he had obtained 
the same through his marriage with her mother.

property was sold by her heirs. 

Mr. Bartholomew purchased property early in both 
Bronford and Wallingford, being designated as " William 
Sr/* to distinguish him from William son of Andrew who 
was called "Jr.," although there was probably not four 
years' difference in their ages. He was made administrator 
of his father's estate in 1727, and in 1739 went to Wood-, 
stock and sold the remaining property his father died 
possessed of there. 

In 1737 he removed temporarily fromBranford to Litch-

little northeast of Little Mount Tom, adjoining the old 
schoolhouse on the south, where he remained the balance

Conveyances of land to and from him, recorded in Litch- 
field, Woodbury and Washington, are numerous. 

He was made a freeman in Branford, 30 April, 1734, and 
is mentioned in a list of freemen in L. in Dec, 1739. 

The last mention found of him is on 12 Jan., 1765,

After his death widow Deborah Bartholomew married

Mr. Bartholomew was an extensive farmer in Branford 
where he remained until he was forty-six years of age, 
and his children were all born. 

He was made freeman there, 29 Apr. , 1740, but had been 
elected to several positions of trust before that event. In 
1754 he made several large purchases of land in Farming- 
ton, Ct., the consideration in one of them with improve- 
ments being £3000. These improvements, which he 
moved into before May 23 of that year, were situated 
about one mile east of what is now called Burlington 
Centre, where an old cellar still remains to mark his first 
al>ode in that section. Later he moved several miles south 
to the house long known as " Bar-tle-my Tavern " which was 
situated on the east side of the present road from Bristol 
to Burlington Centre, on the brow of the hill just south of 
the line which now separates the two towns ; the said two 
towns being then the parish of New Cambridge in the 
town of Farmington. 

This house has also disappeared and nothing now marks 
the place but the old well, cherry trees and an ancient but 
scrubby oak tree on the opposite side of the roadway. It 
was the home of several generations of large families and 
many descendants still live within a mile or two of it. 

There he kept the first tavern in that section, includ- 
ing a frontier stock of merchandise. Tliero tlio first town 
elections of Bristol (which then included Burlington) 



were held, his son Jacob being the town's first treasurer 
and collector. 

The ancient oak mentioned was looked upon as ex- 
tremely old one hundred years ago, when Asa Bartholo- 
mew, then a boy of six, was permitted to pull the trigger 
and shoot a bullet into it from one of his elder brothers' 
muskets which had been loaded in a fight with the British 
at New London ; when nearly ninety years of age he told 
the writer that the tree had apparently grown young in the

He accepted the terms; was probably ordained Oct. 
4, 1738, and continued their pastor some thirty-five 
years. The church in which he preached was a fair illus- 
tration of others of that time and section. 

In form **a square not much oblong, — having, in con- 
nection with no tower, no portico, no vestibule, a front 
door and two side doors, opening inward, — exhibited in- 
teriorly, at a remarkable elevation from its ground-ftoor, 
a balustraded gallery extended along all its sides, except 
that whereto the lofty pulpit, fronting one of the three par- 
allel aisles and with a conspicuous sounding-board sur- 
mounted, firmly adhered; and in either angle, farthest 
from the pulpit, the entrance to a partially enclosed flight 
of stairs by which access to the gallery was given.** 

At its raising, tradition says, all the persons living in 
the town sat at the same time upon its sills. As was cus- 
tomary sufficient fiery liquid was furnished for the occasion 
to satisfy the then general demand. 

**The males sat on the right side of the house ; the 
females, on the left side of it." The pews were square • 
enclosures formed by four tall walls of wainscot work 
against which were arranged seats that, in some cases were 
firmly nailed, in others made to lift up by hinges, upon 
their props. 

Mr. Bartholomew's pastorate in Harwinton was longer 
by years than any which succeeded it there. It left scanty 
historic materials. **As these furnish no ground for a 
different conclusion, the inference seems to be warranted 
that, until his ministry drew toward its end, the course of 
things relative to him and the Church and the Town moved 
on with a general uniformity and smoothness." 

In 1773 and 1774 an arrangement was made between 



him and the town by which he excused them from paying 
him his salary and they excused him and his wife from 
paying any taxes, on condition that they continued in Har- 

^Although dismissed from his relations to the Society, 
by an ecclesiastical council convened for that purpose, 
Jan. 26, 1774," he continued in Harwinton the remainder 
of his life. 

Mr. Bartholomew seldom preached otherwise than ex- 
tempore, and is said to have delivered impromptu ad- 
dresses where other ministers declined for want of 
preparation. In the theological discussions of his time 
he is said to have had decided views which were published 
in several pamphlets, said to exhibit a considerable degree 
of mental acuteness, without acerbity of temper ; they in- 
dicate the author to have been more inured to thinking than 
exercised in literary composition. The historian of Har- 
winton, who has been quoted generously, says, **Hi8 
character may be indicated by saying: while he 'saw that 
wisdom excelleth folly' and said of prudence 'my soul 
followeth hard after thee,' yet he loved also what he re- 
garded as truth ; and aimed to be right in all things." 

His fiimily Bible is preserved by Horace Bartholomew 
and its record has been followed in preference to the town 
record, as they differ. His will mentions considerable 
land, a mill, etc., as his properly. He was building a 
new dwelling house at the time of his death ; which is 
probably the one standing now adjoining the side of the 
old church. Children :

Lieutenant Joseph Bartholomew was the owner of a 
very large farm in the southeastern part of Wallingford 
near the Branford line, where he resided all his life. He 
commanded by commission from the General Court all 
those subject to military duty in the town. 

His heirs filed the following agreement 5 Dec, 1785, in 
place of a will. ''That as God in his providence hath 
lately removed our Hon^ father Lieut. Joseph Bartholo- 
mew of Wallingford by death and as there was no will 
left by our Hon** father in what manner his est. should be 
disposed off. We therefore have mutually agreed, sub- 
scribed with our hands & set to our seals that the following 
agreement shall be binding between us. praying that the 
God of love & peace may keep and maintain that love <&

Mr. Bartholomew's numerous real estate transactions 
irive U8 some clew to his various wanderinors. He was 
mentioned in Wallingford until 1745, Farmington in 1754, 
"VVaterbury in 1758, Torrington in 1760, Farmington again 
in 1762 and 1764, when he sold his house in the southeast 
corner of that town ; and Harwinton 11 April, 1771, 
when he deeded his half of one-third interest in a mill 
place in Wallingford. 

He was a farmer. June 23, 1777, "widow Jerusha"

May, 1742. He bought and sold several tracts of Wood- 
stock land between 1737 and 1741 ; the last being for 
£1244. The following record is based mainly upon the 
memory of Mr. Levi Bartholomew. 

Samuel Bartholomew was a sea captain, making Say- 
brook, Ct., his home. He died ''while his children were 
young," and his remains are said to have been "buried on 
some shore."

Mr. Benjamin Bartholomew was a farmer and a mem- 
ber of the Congregational Church, he and his wife "own- 
ing the covenant" 10 Mar., 1751. He was a soldier in the 
French and Indian war and in the Revolution. Frequent 
mention is made of him and his sons in public capacities 
in the town records. 

He lived all his life only a short distance from and over- 
looking the site of the mill and residence in Woodstock 
of his grandfather Lieutenant William Bartholomew. 

Just before his death, while in ordinary health and away 
from home, his mind became permanently deranged ; when 
found he could only explain, "sun about an hour high."

Branford in 1726-7 ; married in Woodbury, Ct., 1 July, 
1750, Miiry daughter of Joseph and Mary (Warner) Squire 
of Woodbury. Joseph Squire died in 1746 leaving 
children Mary and Gurdon. Lemuel Bartholomew and 
wife Mary were, on the death of Mrs. Mary Squire, in 
1750, made guardians of Gurdon Squire, rot. 14. Lem- 
uel Bartholomew died in Whitehall, N. Y., 22 Mar., 1801, 
•^in the 75^^ yr. of his age" (gi-avestoiie). She died in 
Whitehall, 7 Mar., 1821 "in 88th year of age." 

His first purchase of pi'operty was made in Litchfield 
in 1748; for twenty years following his name often ai> 
pears upon the land records of Litchfield, then disappears 
entirely. Probably it was about lli\d when he moved to 
Skcnesboro, N. Y., settling in the northeast part of the 
present township of Whitehall, clearing and opening the 
farm now partly owned by Sylvester Bartholomew. Here 
he is said to have planted the first orchard in Washington 

"They came here," says a descendant, "in the perilous 
times of the French and Indian wars and were among the 
first settlers in this section. The French yet held Fort 



Ticonderoga only thirty miles away and bloody conflicts 
were taking place around Lake George. Once during 
Lemuel's absence his wife and young children were taken 
by a party of Indians. The house was plundered and the 
family compelled to set out with their captors. After 
going a short distance a halt was called and a council held ; 
torture and death were now expected; but the Indians 
after addressing them with a few unintelligible words 
suddenly left them to return unharmed.^ 

For an expression of thanks for kindness done by him 
to his sister Bersheba, see mention of her. 

He with his brother and several of his sons served in 
the Revolutionary Army. 

He and his wife were the founders of the numerous 
branch which calls Whitehall its ancestral home. 

The eastern portion of the town was called ''Bar-tle- 
my Town" on account of the number of Bartholomews 
living there. "They were," said one who knew them 
seventy years ago, "strong, energetic, determined men, 
thrifty and independent farmers, making the name a syn- 
onymd for honor, integrity and success." Probably the 
largest settlement of persons in existence bearing this 
name is in that vicinity. 

The order of the births of his children is not positively 

i Joseph,' b. in Lltchfleldi remained there ;v?hen his folks 
moved to Skenesboro. He appears from the Colonial 
records of N. Y., to have been a tenant of Philip Skene

return trip to Conn.

Mr. Bartholomew died in Hartford, Vt., 16 Feb., 1813, 
let. 81 ; she died eight days after ^in her 73rd year ;" 
they having lived together fifty-six years. 

His earliest dealings in real estate commenced in 1755, 
in Litchfield. In 1759, he with others petitioned the Gen- 
eral Court to set them off from the town of Litchfield to 
the town of Judea (now Bethlehem and Washington), 

his residence, being in the extreme southwest comer of 


the town, was much nearer the church of Judea than that 
of Litchfield. After the formation of the parish of Morris 
he joined its Congregational Church, 9 Oct., 1791. 

He was a farmer, owning large tracts of land ; but 
it was nearly all rough, rocky and sterile : ^ Tired," 
as he afterwards said, "of working rough country, I 
moved to Vermont." He settled in Hartford about 

In deeding his Litchfield land on June 10, of that year 
he is mentioned "of Litchfield." His was probably the 
same house in which his father had lived in Litchfield ; it 
has now been destroyed, but the farm is owned by Mr. 
William L. Burgess. Children :

called upon to attend persons living at a distance. She 
was a wonderAilly brave and vigorous woman as an inci- 
dent will show. She received an urgent call one dark 
night following a storm. The invalid was five mUes away 
across White River, which was swollen deep and swift; 
there was no means of crossing except to ford it ; noth- 
ing daunted she ordered her favorite horse and being tied 
to his back, the horse swam the river and carried her 
safely to her sick ftiend.

During a portion of his minority, he was under guard- 
ianship of his uncle Nathaniel Barnes, of Plymouth, then 
a parish called " Northbury," in Waterbury. 

That accounts for his settling in Plymouth as soon as 
he reached his maturity. In 1768, he was living in Wall- 
ingford but soon after returned to Plymouth.^ He took 
oath of fidelity there 6 Sept., 1777. In 1779 he again

He was the most extensive farmer in his locality. His 
wonderful energy and thoroughness are illustrated by the 
miles of stone wall he built, which will apparently stand 
until some earthquake dislodges the stones. 

He owned and operated several mills, but gave much 
of his time to public affairs, being frequently elected 
selectman, representative, etc. He was noted for his 
honesty and Integrity. Was a whig and republican, and 
^ a member of the Baptist Church. His death, like that 

of his brother Oliver, was the result of a fall. 

39 Oliver^ {Josiah*^ Isaac? ^ Williarri?^) born in Bran- 


ford, 20 Oct., 1757 ; married in Goshen, 6 July, 1780, 
Anna daughter of Ebenezer and Freelove (Canfield) Lacy. 
She was born in New Milford, Conn., 23 June, 1758 and 
died in Watertitwn, N. Y., 30 Oct., 1848, »t. 90. He 
died 18 June, 1850, set. 92. 

Mr. Bartholomew enlisted at Goshen Jan., 1776, under 
Captains Beebe andTuttle, in Col. Charles Webb's Conn, 
regiment; in 1777, in Col. Enos' Conn, regiment, and in 
March, 1779, serving three years as an artificer in Colonel 
Jeduthan Baldwin's regiment. He removed from Goshen 
to Lee, Mass., in 1782, where he was a member of the 
church, having been previously baptized. After a year 
or two, he moved to Washington, Conn., thence, before 
1788, to Vershire, Vt., whose church he joined in 1792. 
Li 1794 he removed to Augusta, N. Y. and in Mar., 1800, 
to Watertown, N. Y., settling one and one-half miles west 
of the village on the road to Brownsville, where he re- 
mained until his decease. 

In 1803, he was largely instrumental in the forming of 
the fii*st Baptist Church in the county, the meetings being 
held at his house. He was made a deacon, having, it is 
said, already held that position in other churches since 1789. 
He was also a pioneer in the temperance cause ; and in 
1803, when ready to raise his barn, having prepared an 
abundance of baked sheep, pumpkin pies, etc., for refresh- 
ments, his neighbors refused to assist in the " raising," as 
it was known that the deacon would not furnish any spirits ; 
such a scruple was rare in those days and they would 
not tolcmte it. But the business and professional men of 
the village, learning the fact, rallied to the farm the fol- 
lowing day, raised the barn, and ate the sheep and pies. 
The deacon had, in reality, gained one of the first victories 
for the temperance cause. He told his neighbors that he 
would let the timbers rot on the ground before he would 
furnish them any whiskey to drink. 


Deacon Bartholomew, or his sons, would never accept 
political office, although frequently solicited so to do. But 
the welfare of the church was always his care ; this is illus- 
trated, as well as the wonderful preseryatioh of his physical 
powers, by the fact that, at the age of 91, the meeting house 
having burned, in his zeal to rebuild it, he went to the 
woods, chopped and piled over thirty cords of four foot 
Wood, the proceeds of tlie sale of which were applied tow- 
ards the erection of a new church building. At his death 
he had held the office of deacon for sixty-two years, having 
enjoyed with his wife, Anna, a happy married life of about 
sixty-eight years. Children :

DanieP, Dr. Abraham^ y Wm.^)^ who was born 22 Dec, 
1761 and admitted to the Congregational Church in Lee, 
Mass., 18 May, 1794 ; from which she withdrew 29 Feb., 
1795, probably on account of removal to New York State. 
She died 23 July, 1823. Ho married, second, in Dryden

just after eating a hearty breakfast, 24 Jan., 1846,

Mr. Bartholomew moved to Lee, Mass., as early as 1783, 
when he was admitted to the church there, having been 
previously baptized. He removed to Herkimer County, 
N. Y., and thence to Locke, Cayuga County, before 1798. 
In 1806 he settled in Dryden, Tompkins County, N. Y., 
where he remained until death. He was a farmer, and a 
Baptist ; and is said by his children to have been so even- 
tempered as never to have been seen in a passion. 

He was the father of fifteen children and grandfather of 
some seventy. "His sons were all men in the full sense 
of the word ;" the last was born in time to make his father's 
seventieth year glad. Children :

his residence repeatedly ; he remained in Northford and 
Wallingford until of age ; the following spring he pur- 
chased property in Waterbury near the Wolcott line where 
he remained, on or near lot 31. During the next three 
years he lived in Amenity and Milford ; but in 1778, ap- 
pears to have returned from New Haven to Waterbury,

Branford, 11 Jan., 1731-2. He is mentioned as of Say- 
brook, Conn, in 1746, and of Brauford in 1753 and 1755. 
He died before 21 Jan., 1788, when his mother's dower 
interest was divided ; a portion of which was set out to his 
heirs. But diligent search has not settled who the heirs 
were ; for a long time they were confounded with the de- 
scendants of SamueP. 

It is possible that Obed and Gad Bartholomew of Wa- 
terbury, who in 1795 with others were feoffees of the Epis- 
copal Church property there, were such. Also that Sybil 
Bartholomew '* or Williams" (says Bronson's History of 
Waterbury) was his widow, and a relative of Davenport 
Williams of Branford. She married in Waterbury, 15 
Jan., 1766, Daniel Hickox of Watertown, Ct., and died

deranged. He died about 1816 ; his children living after 
his death, with their uncle and ^unt Leavett in Washing- 
ton, Ct. 

Dr. Bartholomew graduated from Yale College in 1778 
and practised medicine in Bethlehem, and in Greene Co., 
N. Y. 

^ There was a fearful epidemic in his town " which baffled 
the physicians' powers to understand or cure. Aware of 
the probable result, he made a post-mortem examination 
of the remains of one of his patients who had died with the 
disease, and had only time to place the results of his search 
in proper form on paper, when he died. But this noble 
sacrifice of his life was not in vain, his diagnosis of the 
disease was sufficient to enable the doctors to treat the 
other cases successfully. 

No more heroic death from devotion to science and hu- 
manity ever occurred. Children :

in Wallingford, 11 Aug., 1745; married, 23 Dec, 1773, 
Esther Grant of Lyme, Vt. ; and died in Thetford, Vt., 
20 Feb., 1831, »t. 85. She was born 25 Sept., 1745 ; and 
died in T., 29 June, 1824, set. 78. 

Mr. Bartholomew was early left fatherless, and, his 
mother remarrying, ''alone in the world," as he said ; in 
youth he removed to Vershire, Vt. He may have lived 
previously with his mother's people in Tolland, Conn. 

He cleared and cultivated a fine farm and ^ was an accom- 
plished surveyor." 

He was chosen Justice of the Peace for Thetford, 17 
June, 1778. June 10, 1780, he was appointed commis- 
sioner, by the Governor and Council, for the sale of con- 
fiscated estates of enemies yi the towns of Norwich, Sharon, 
Thetford, Stratford (Strafford), Fairlee and Mooretowu 
(Bradford). He was appointed on Special Committees in 
1781 and 1782, and was repeatedly a member of the General 
Assembly. Oct. 9, 1795, he is styled "Late Commis- 
sioner of Confiscation in this State "(Vt.). In 1801 he 
petitioned the Legislature in behalf of the inhabitants of 
Thetford, to make certain divisions of Thetford hmds "nec- 
essary to quiet title." 

His influence was positive in 1778 against the continu- 
ance of the old county organization, and prominent in 
support of VeiTOont and her rights. "He was nearly the 
perfection of manhood ; and at eighty years of age could 
spring from the ground into his saddle," says one ; and 
another, that " Timothy Bartholomew was a true gentleman * 
of the old school. His heart was the embodiment of all 
that is humane and lovely." 

He died at sunset from apoplexy, after having attended 
church " on the Hill" on a very cold Sunday. ^

** Timothy Bartholomew was one of the earliest settlers of 
Thetfordy Vt., and Yoluntarily, took upon himself the. 
trials and privations inseparably connected with frontier 
life. His youth and delicate make seemed ill suited for 
so laborious and trying an ordeal, for he had not only 
uncultivated nature to subdue, but the sneaking bear, the 
greedy wolf, and far worse than these, the merciless sav- 
age to beat back and to conquer, in those days of alarm. 

But his rare intellectual endowments guided his band 
and fashioned his course, and these made ample amends 
for his physical wants. Here his toil was an eminent suc- 
cess, and his labors were rewarded by abundant returns, 
and crowded his garners with breadstuffs that in after time 
never ran low, or closed against the appeals of want ; for 
his heart was generous and his hand open, hence his wide 
reputation as the almoner of the poor. Whether taste or 
accident, bis selection of a home was most fortunate, com- 
bining, as it does, utility, romance and beauty, each in a 
high degree. Cosily and effectually protected from light- 
nings and tempests, midway between a long sweep of the 
river on the right and a bold bluff on the left, now stands 
the representative of his primitive cot, and around which 
lay the sweet fields he so fondly cultivated. A wife soon 
became sharer of his fortune and worthy of his hand, so in 
due time seven children were gathered about their board, 
and thus completing the main programme of life ; six of 
whom they had the pleasure of seeing heads of families 
and settled about them. 

The elder son died in early manhood, and the younger 
without issue, so now the name has no living respondent ; 
and yet the Bartholomew blood flows vigorously through 
many a vein in the wide spread issue of the five daughters ; 
whose palladium has ever been his mantle of justice ; and 
truly has, and ever will sustain them in the way of honor. 


Far and wide he was known as the *' Squire " and famed 
for his uprightness ; hence he became a court of appeal 
among his bickering townsmen, and no one questioned the 
honesty of his decisions. 

Although of marked sober mien, he much enjoyed jets 
of wit and fun, and with them played a ready hand ; but 
carefully avoided contention and strife, being uncongenial 
to his nature ; but chose, rather, to faithfully execute his 
patriarchal mission in rounding up a model home, as the 
better inheritance for his heirs. His uniform quiet ways 
might question his courage, but his prowess was satisfac- 
torily vindicated by his single-handed grapple with a 
predatory bear in his sheepfold at midnight, that he laid 
bleeding at his feet. 

And now, beside the beautiful river he so loved, and 
the towering bluffs in the background, in the dust of the 
valley that served him so well, heedless of the thundering 
rail, he sleeps in peace, with the loved ones of his family 
around him." (See likeness, opposite p. 126). Children :

57 Jonathan^ {Joseph^, Andrevf, William^,) born in 
Wallingford, 5 Nov., 1750. This date is from the town 
records ; one descendant says it was 6 May, 1751 ; and the 
U. S. Pension Dept. has it 3 and 23 Feb., 1755, which 
must be wrong if the order in which the children are men- 
tioned in the town and other records is coiTect. 

He married in W., Anna Cook ; and died 28 Jan., 1846 
and is said to have been ** aged about 96 years." She was 
bom 5 Oct., 1751, and died 13 Jan., 1836, «t. 84.

York City and Long Island in building forts. In May, 
1776, he was detailed for hospital service, particularly to 
care for Lieut. Hart, who was ill with camp fever ; with 
which he was afterwards attacked ; and removed on the 
evacuation of the city with the retreat of the army to Kings- 


bridge. He recovered sufficiently, although weak and 
feeble, to participate in the battle at White Plains in Oct., 
1776. In the spring of 1777, he was engaged in guard 
duty on the Conn, coast, but later, joined Col. Enos' reg- 
iment and marched up the North River to repel Gen'l Bur- 
goyne's advance ; after the latter's surrender at Saratoga, 
the regiment returned to Horseneck, Ct. 

The next year he substituted in place of Stephen Hall, 
who had been drafted for coast-guard duty. In 1780, 
while at Fishkill and Peekskill, on the North river, one 
man was shot and another hung, through his evidence, for 
having enlisting orders from British authority.

Charity, daughter of Isaac Wells Shelton and wife Martha 
Shelton, whose mother was Abigail lineal descendant of 
Henry Weakley, the first lawyer of record in the Conn. 
Colony, and whose grandmother was granddaughter of 
Lieut. John Hubbell, famed in the f arly Indian wars, and 
Wm. Thompson of New Haven. Isaac Wells Shelton 
was grandson of the emigrant Daniel Shelton (see Shelton 
Memorial) and his wife Elizabeth, granddaughter of Gov. 
Thomas Wells and great granddaughter of Gov. Richard 
Treat, and Lord HoUister of the manor of Stenchcomb 
and Burleigh, Eng. 

She died in Bristol 15 Sept., 1859, set. 75. He died in 
Bristol 31 Oct., 1864 in his 89th year. 

Mr. Bartholomew spent his schooldays at the old 
Peaceable street schoolhouse. After their marriage, in 
1805, they moved to Pleasant Valley, N. Y., where they 
kept a tavern, until Sept., 1807, when returning to Bristol 
he purchased a 360 acre farm now the site of the village of 
Polkville. His residence was that at present occupied by 
Mr. Isaac Bronson. 

He was an energetic pushing farmer and a successful 
business man. Of an uncommonly independent nature, 
he never sought favor nor cared to hold office ; shrewd 


and honest, his opinions, original and frankly given, were ' 
never cranky, but founded on good common sense, and 
carried great weight in the community. He was very 
social and in his later years most pleasantly known by 
all, both old and young, as **Uncle Asa Bartholomew."

Mr. Erastus Bartholomew was more than the average 
man. He was endowed with uncommon inventive power. 
In company with William Church, he labored for many 
years in Vershire and in Boston, Mass., to originate new 
and improve the old machinery of his day. They made 
"the first breech loading gun," "the first machine for the 
making or forging of nails," a knitting machine "probably 
the first in the country ;" also he invented and made the 
power and iron hand presses, the "toggle joint" so useful 
in presses, etc. , the first machine for making cordage and 
coil chain, and numerous other machines and articles of 
great value, the patents for nearly all of which, his de- 
scendants still have in their possession. 

Isaac Adams, the inventor of Adams' Press, was an ap- 
prentice of Mr. Bartholomew's, and that press was in a 
measure the joint invention of the two. Like nearly all 
men in his day who adopted mechanics for a business, be 
was a "blacksmith," which term then included the most 
skilful and ambitious of iron workers. Physically he was 
neither fleshy nor tall, still he weighed 210 pounds and 
was a giant in strength. He was a whig, and Attended 
the Baptist Church. Children :

Mr. Bartholomew moved from Waterbury with his 
brothers to Trumbull Co., Ohio, in 1804. He settled iu 
Vienna, where he was killed by a limb of a tree which 
he was felling, striking him on his head. It was the first 
death in the new settlement and his remains were the fii*st 
interred in its cemetery. 

The historian of the town, mentioning the event, says, 
^'The Bartholomews, from their ready ingenuity and me- 
chanical skill, as well as their society, were a great addition 
to the community. But one of the sad, inscrutable prov- 
idences which occur sometimes in life, was destined to 
deprive the commonwealth of one of its best and most 
useful members." 

His brother Seth, dying of fever soon after, left the 
young families unprotected ; but bowed forms, shattered 
nerves, and hardened hands show how their children 
met the emergency which they mastered. 

Mrs. Mary is said to have taught the first school in the 
portion of Trumbull County in which they settled.

cher; and died in Ripley^ Ohio, 1842, cet. 80. She was 
born 6 March, 1788 ; and died in 1851. 


At the age of thirteen, on account of his father's death, 
he was placed under the guardianship of Abner Wilson, 
and subsequently ^ bound" to Capt. Nathan Foot, who in 
1786 made to him a conveyance of land in E. Cornwall, 
Vt., where he was then living. This he sold in 1813, 
and moved to Brown Co., Ohio. 

He devoted many years to the improvement and culture 
of fruits in which he engaged largely ; and by his example 
and success greatly encouraged their cultivation in the 
sections in which he lived. 

He was a man of some eccentricities ; possessing exten- 
sive information and great social powers. He had a decided 
taste for poetry, one volume of his poems being pub- 
lished. It contains about one hundred pages and is 
entitled ^'Will Whittling, or the Spoiled Child." It 
exhibited, in homely phraseology and in euphonious 
rhymes, a correct picture of the effects of foolish parental 
partiality and indulgence as sometimes seen in fostering 
the passions of a child, which, unrestrained, lead to crime. 
The following are a few lines : 

"When truant fancy gains ascendance 
Blind guides will offer their attendance ; 
And reason grown as blind as they, 
No more can hold its proper sway, 
Nor will, ir blinded, interpose. 
Credulity, a leader grows. 
And representing falsehood true. 
Assent is given thereunto." 

" This guide habituates the mind 
To follow, as it is inclined. 
Deceptive cheats, without suspense, 
And scorn impartial evidence.*' 

•* If lying fancy is our guide. 
And Reason's dictates laid aside. 
We willingly become deceived, 
Nor seek to have our minds relieved." 


He styled himself the '* Woodland Rhymster." Mrs. 
Chloe joined the Congregational Church in E. Cornwall 4 
May, 1801) but subsequently became an Independent 
Baptist. Their adopted daughter Nancy was baptized 7 
Aug., 1803. Children:

Mrs. Belinda is still bright and active, although in her 
99th year ; she resides with her son John Gilbert. 


Mr. Bartholomew took the oath of fidelity in April, 
1792. At the death of his father he succeeded to the 
home and farm of his grandfather Daniel Bartholomew in 
H. Like his brother, he learned the cooper's trade, and 
carried it on in connection with his farm. 

It seems in place to call attention to the very great 
number of long lives recorded in this work and state that 
few couples ever I'each the great age of this one, or more 
strikingly illustrate the fact that quiet farm life, with its 
routine, " early to bed and early to rise," are most favor- 
able conditions for longevity. Children :

marked mechanical skill and inventive talent. 

His trade was pattern maker and to this day his patterns 
are cherished. As a man he was as near perfection, from 
all we can learn, as it is our mortal nature to witness. 
His disposition was most amiable, always kind; and 
perhaps no word in our language expresses a better quality 
in human nature. Of great personal beauty he was revered 
and beloved by all."

ville, 18 Apr., 1814; married, in Bristol, Ct., 15 Sept., 
1834, Polly H., daughter of Truman Root of Bristol. 

Mr. Bartholomew, after receiving a limited district 
school education, commenced his business career at the 
age of fifteen by learning the tinner's trade ; he was for a 
season, clerk of the well known Adna Whiting of Plain- 
ville. Subsequently he worked at various occupations, 
but always with the application, perseverance and intelli- 
gence which afterwards brought him, as it has many other 


New England poor young men, power and influence that 
he never anticipated. 

Having engaged himself in a Wolcottville, Ct., brass 
kettle factory, he became its superintendent ; and, ulti- 
mately, general agent of a larger business of the same 
character, in Ansonia, Ct., for which Anson G. Phelps of 
N. Y. City furnished the capital. 

Here Mr. Bartholomew's business capacity was given a 
field ; and the Battery Mills, Brass and Copper, and Brass, 
Copper and Iron Wire Mills, with their numerous branches, 
which were built, started, and operated most successfully 
for some twenty-five years by him, as agent, superintend- 
ent, etc., of the very extensive manufacturing firm of 
Phelps, Dodge & Co., are evidences of his rare ability. 

He held this position until ill health, in 1876, forced 
him to resign. By his personal efibrts the New Haven 
and Derby Railroad was built to Birmingham and Ansonia. 
He became its president in 1874, and has continued to con- 
trol it ever since. In all matters of public interest, he has 
been foremost in action, liberal in aid, and has completed 
all his undertakings successfully. His town and district 
have sent him as their representative to the House of 
Representatives and Senate. Is a republican ; and has 
been, since 1843, a member of the Congregational Church. 

He spends his summers at his cottage, ** Sea Cliflf/' at 
Stony Creek, Ct. Childiipn :

brother Eli, mostly ; but that year, he settled in Eagleville, 
Ashtabula County, O., where he spent the remainder of 
his life.

251 William N.^ (Erastu^, Mose^, Josiah*,) bom in

S. Thurston of Berwick, Me. 

Mr. Bartholomew's father made a vain effort to make a 
fiurmer of him, then a cabinet maker ; the latter, although 
much more to his taste, was given up by him, after he had 
been in business for himself three years, to again attend 

It was then, by sketching the boys' heads and the 
grotesque gestures of the minister of the place, that he 
discovered his ability to draw. It soon became his passion 
and on leaving school he decided to make it the business 
of his life. At that time there were no professional teachers 
of drawing and painting, and he was forced to plod along 
as others had done before him. He went to Boston, used 
itB fine libraries and collections of art, and in time qualified 
himself to teach drawing. He conceived the idea of intro- 
ducing the study into the public schools and making it a 
required study ; he applied for, and was granted, permis- 
sion to give gratuitous instruction in a few of the schools 
of the city. 


This, in 18529 was the first attempt to give systematic 
instruction in drawing in public schools in this country. 
The experiment was satisfactory, and he was soon after 
appointed to take charge of that branch in the High Schools 
of Boston. Under his influence and direction the study 
was, in 1868, made obligatory in all the schools of the city 
and he was made general supervisor of the same, which 
position he held until he resigned in 1871. Besides doing 
this he has prepared for publication, a long list of text 
books on the various branches of the subject; through 
which mainly, since the first series were printed in 1854, 
the study has been generally introduced throughout the 
entire country. 

The knowledge of this art, so necessary to the mechan- 
ical industries and to any artistic culture, is so important 
that too much credit cannot be given Mr. Bartholomew 
for what he has accomplished. Meantime he has devoted 
his leisure hours and his latter years, almost exclusively 
to landscape painting, with a high degree of success. He 
resides in Newton Centre, Mass., spending his summers at 
his father's old home in Post Mills, Vt. (See likeness on

^There was an orderly with Col. Esty, a youth about sev- 
erUeefif whose gallant and reckless daring attracted my 
attention; under the heaviest fire, when our men were 
falling all around him, he kept his sabre waving over his

Mr. Bartholomew was named after two navy commo- 
dores, and educated for an engineer. He was one of the 
first steamboat engineers on the Hudson river, and served 
through the Mexican war as a first assistant engineer in 
the U. S. Navy. Subsequently he had charge of some 
of the European steamship lines and held other prominent 
positions in the merchant's seiTice, being at the time of 
his death superintending engineer of the Pacific Mail 
Steamship Company with headquarters at Panama. 


He originated several improvements in engines and ma- 
chinery, for which he received medals and diplomas from 
the American Institute. Old engineers say he was greatly 
respected and honored for his great knowledge and skill 
in steam engineering. 

He distinguished himself in his self-possessed efforts to 
save the passengers on the ill-fated Guatemala, and to 
have heroically seen every one else off the vessel before 
leaving it. The boat he was in was lost. Children :

804 George Medad^ (lioswelP, Andretc^j Andreu^^) 
born in Hartford, Ct., 3 Oct., 1816; married in Guilford 
22 June, 1847, Fannie Griswold, daughter of Abraham 
S. Fowler of Guilford. She was bom in West Haven, 
Ct,, 29 July, 1818. 

For the past fifty years George M. Bartholomew has 
been actively engaged in business in Hartford, and, at 
the present time May, 1883, he is generally regarded as 
the busiest man in that busy city. His interests are more 
diverse, varied and numerous than those of any dozen or- 
dinary active men, and his success in meeting all the calls 
that are made upon him is a constant wonder, only to be 
accounted for by his untiring energy, his remarkable sys- 
tematic methods, his quick comprehension and the other 
gifts that go to make generalship in the arts of peace. 
The City of Hartford is famous as a centre of insurance 
and banking; for the many manufacturing and railroad 
investments of its capital ; and for the development of 
those institutions, humane and educational, whose purpose 
is to make life pleasanter or better ; its hospitals, asy- 
lums, schools, libraries, etc. ; with all of these interests 
Mr. Bartholomew is more or less closely connected. 


He is a native of the city, bom there in 1816. In 1832 
he entered Trinity College, then Washington College in 
Hartford, but left it the next spring on account of ill 
health and went into business as a clerk for the Connecti- 
cut River Banking Company, of which he was subse- 
quently for years a director. A few months later he left 
the bank and became clerk for Robert Watkinson in the 
wholesale dry goods busiiiess, and was made his partner 
six years afterwards, in 1839. The partnership continued 
many years, until Mr. Watkinson's retirement from busi- 
ness. From the sale of cotton and woollen goods, they 
turned to manufacturing, and at one time had several cot- 
ton mills in Marlboro, Manchester and South Glastenbury 
in Connecticut. Mr. Bartholomew is now the president 
and treasurer of the Union Manufacturing Company (cot- 
ton goods), at Manchester, and director of the Wasac 
Manufacturing Company (cotton goods), at South Glas- 
tenbury, and also of the Hartford Engineering Com- 
pany's large Foundry and Machine Works of Hartford. 
But the most prominent manufacturing enterprise with 
which he is connected is the Holyoke, Mass., Water 
Power Company, of which he has been president since 
1859. It has a dam 1,019 feet long, 30 feet high, across 
the whole stream of the Connecticut River at Holyoke, 
and the power thus secured is rented for manufacturing 
purposes. Along the banks of its canals there are now 
sixty mills with more than 11,000 employes; .thirty- 
eight different kinds of products are manufactured there, 
and in several lines of industry, Holyoke is the centre of 
production for the country. Its population is 26,000, 
and it is to-day one of the famous manufacturing cities of 
the United States. In 1859, when Mr. Bartholomew be- 
came president of the company, there were only eight 
mills there, and these niade only four kinds of products. 


The entire population was but 4,800, and work for about 
1,700« This transformation has all taken place under Mr. 
Bartholomew's management, and of itself would make a 
lifework to be proud of. 

In insurance, Mr. Bartholomew's most important work 
is that which has come to him as president of the Charter 
Oak Life Insurance Company. After that company had 
been brought intoinsolvency by mismanagement, the policy 
holders, those who were insured in it, took its affairs into 
their own hands, and in April, 1878, elected a board of 
directors from their own number. Mr. Bartholomew was 
made one of this board, and in the next month was chos- 
en as president j)ro tern of the company, and the next 
month became formally its president. He has held the 
office ever since, and under his capable management its 
financial condition has been steadily improving. He has, 
from its organization, been a director of the Orient Fire 
Insurance Company, whose assets have grown to be 
$1,450,000, and since 1866 he has been a director of the 
well-known Steam Boiler Inspection and Insurance Com- 

His first banking service, after his brief early clerkship, 
was as director of the Connecticut River BankingCompany , 
a position that he held from 1843 to 1858. In September, 
1857, he was appointed receiver of the Bank of Hartford 
County, which suspended with so many other banks in the 
panic of 1857. In 1858, this bank having resumed, he was 
made its president. When the national banking system was 
established it went into that under the name of the Amer- 
ican National Bank of Hartford, and he continued to be its 
president until 1871, when, after thirteen years' service, 
he declined a reelection but remained a director. He is 
a trustee of the State Savings Bank of Hartford, whose 


assets are about $2,000 000, and recently he has been 
made its vice president. 

In 1858 he began his active railroad work, having been 
appointed a trustee of the mortgage of the Hertford, 
Providence and Fishkill Railroad, running from Water- 
bury, Conn., to Providence, R. I., and now a part of the 
New York and New England Road. He held the posi- 
tion of acting trustee, managing the road for about 
twenty years, operating it for the bondholders and regu- 
larly paying the interest on the bonds until the New York 
and New England took possession ; paid off the bonds and 
discharged the trustees and the mortgage. In May, 
1858, he was made a director of the Chicago and North- 
western Railroad, in which he was interested with Samuel 
J. Tilden, Wm. B. Ogden and other well-known men. 
He remained a director in the company until 1867, when 
he resigned preparatory to going abroad. In 1863 he 
was chosen director and president of the Boston, Hart- 
ford and Erie Railroad and remained its president until 
September, 1866. In 1867 he was made receiver of the 
company, and held that position until the courts turned 
over the property to trustees for the bondholders. In 
1868 he was chosen director, and, in 1872, vice president 
of the Connecticut Western Road, and maintained his 
connection with the company until its reorganization. 
For a short time in 1872 he was president of the New 
Jersey Southern Railroad, from which he voluntarily re- 
tired when Jay Gould bought up the stock of the com- 
pany. In 1880, associated with the Hon. James G. 
Blaine and others, he was one of the organizers of the 
Richmond and Alleghany Railroad, and he was its first 
president ; he was also one of the organizers of the At- 
lantic and Northwestern Road of Virginia. Since 1863 


he has been a trustee of the Indianapolis and CiucinDati 
Bailroad First Mortgage Bonds. 

Among other interests, he is the president of the Amer- 
ican Emigrant Company, which has large land grants in 
Iowa, and has opened these for settlers from abroad. 
The company has close business relations with the Scan- 
dinavian countries, and with all of northern Europe ; and, 
besides furnishing homes in America for the people, car- 
ries on an important business in foreign exchange with 
these countries. In its interests Mr. Bartholomew in 
1867 trarelled through England, Scotland, Sweden, Den- 
mark, Germany, France and Switzerland. Two years 
ago he was appointed by the courts receiver of the Quin- 
nemont West Virginia Iron Furnace Works and Property, 
and is still in the discharge of that trust. 

So much for the large affairs of railroads, insurance, 
bulking, manufacture, etc. ; but these do not cover the 
whole of Mr. Bartholomew's activity. All his life he has 
been closely identified with the social life and develop- 
ment of Hartford. As far back as 1847, at the time of 
the old Volunteer fire department, he was foreman of En- 
gine Company No. 4. For several years ho was senior 
warden of St. John's Episcopal Church, with which ho 
has been connected ever since its organization in 1842. 
Since 1858 he has been a trustee of the American Asy- 
lum for the Deaf and Dumb, the first institution of the 
kind in America. He htis been a trustee of Trinity Col- 
lege since 1863, and is also a trustee of the Watkinson 
Library, and of the Hartford Hospital, and a member of 
the board of directors of the Kctreut for the Insane. He 
was executor and trustee of the estate of his early part- 
ner, Robert Watkinson, and executor on the estate of 
David AVatkinson, whose gifts to Hartford have perma- 
nently associated that name with the city's. 


The facts about Mr. Bartholomew's domestic life are 
given elsewhere. Here has been briefly outlined his 
public and business career, with its striking evidence of 
his remarkable capacity for work. The demands upon 
him were never greater than to-day, and his supply of 
energy seems as inexhaustible as ever. 

At the present time his positions of trust are as fol- 
lows 2 — 

Pi*esident of the Charter Oak Life Insurance Company 
of Hartford ; Holyoke Water Power Company of Hol- 
yoke ; Union Manufacturing Company of Manchester ; 
American Emigrant Company; Vice President of the 
State Savings Bank, Hartford. 

Director of the Hertford Steam Boiler Insurance 
and Inspection Company, Hartford ; Orient Fire Insur- 
ance Company, Hartford ; American National Bank, Hart- 
ford ; Hartford Engineering Company, Hartford ; Wasac 
Manufacturing Company, South Glastenbury; Receiver 
of the Quinnemont Iron Works, West Virginia. 

Trustee of Trinity College, Hartford; Watkinson Li- 
brary, Hartford ; American Asylum, Hartfoixl ; Hartford 
Hospital, Hartford ; Retreat for the Insane, Hartford. 

These together represent something over $21,000,000 
of capital invested in a wide variety of interests — mercan- 
tile, humane, educational — for all of which he finds time.

364 HdwaxdShemeld^ (AbiaiLordf^y William^, Sam- 
uel^,) born 8 July, 1822 ; died 3 May, 1858. 

He was a native of Colchester, Ct. Apprenticed while 
yet a lad to a book-binder in Hartford, he afterward prac- 
tised dentistry for a short time, but abandoned his business 
in disgust. While at school he had found amusement in 
drawing with chalk, and in later years indulged a propen- 
sity to look at pictures whenever and wherever he could 
find them. In the practical community in which he lived 
his neglect of a lucrative, though distasteful, occupation 
was not approved ; and his desultory and apparently way- 
ward habits were not adapted to win him confidence among 
a proverbially thrifty and methodical people. 

About this period the life of Benvenulo Cellini fell into 
Bartholomew's hands. To most of us this egotistical, but 
most interesting autobiography is memorable as a vivid 
picture of the life of the middle ages, but to the young 
Connecticut enthusiiist, baffled, aspiring, discouraged and 
isolated, it was an inspiration^ proving what courage and 
self-reliance can accomplish, and that, too, in the identical 
career most attractive to Bartholomew. To use his own 
expression, Cellini's life ** put the devil into him.'' He 
gave up regular employment, went about looking at pic- 
tures and indulged in a melancholy humor, so that his 
friends grew cold, regarding him as a perverse visionary. 
A clever crayon sketch which he made and a year of patient 
study at the Life School of the Academy in N. Y. gave 
the judicious few a better insight into his aims and abilities. 

He received the appointment of curator of the Wads- 
worth Gallery at Hailford, as congenial a position for an 
art student as can be imagined, and he eagerly improved 
the facilities here afforded him. He made careful copies 
of the figures on Etruscan vases and of the engravings 
from Raphael's cartoons, originally presented by Napoleon 


I to the N. Y. Academy of Fine Arts, but then deposited 
in the Wadsworth collection. This practice was of great 
importance in disciplining the eye and hand of the draughts- 
man, but when he attempted to work in oil he made the 
painful discovery tliat he was color blind. He now deter- 
mined to try his skill in plastic as he was inadequate to 
pictorial art. Patiently and earnestly he went to work 
and the result was his bust of ** Flora," from the execution 
of which fairly dates his artistic career. 

After remaining in Hartford three years he next attended 
the anatomical lectures of Dr. Watts in New York. While 
there he took the small pox in its most terrible form, it 
settled in one of his limbs and left him with shattered 
health and a cripple for life. For nearly a year he tried 
nnsnocessfully to regain a portion of his former vigor at 
the water-cure establishment in Brattleboro, Vt. 

In 1850, with pocket nearly empty, but a heart full of 
noble aspirations and an inexhaustible mine of true Amer- 
ican self-reliance and a will to do or die, he set out for 
Italy. He sailed in the *^ Pegasus," a three hundred ton 
Italian tub, without knowing a word of the language ; after 
living wholly upon wormy bread for forty-six seasick 
days, he was landed on the coast of France. He was at 
once seized as a suspicious personage, taken in a cart to 
Hyeres, his person and luggage searched and finally sent 
forward to Toulon for further exan^nation. Liberated, 
he found his way to Italy, and in four days was in Kome 
hard at work on his bas-relief ^^ Homer led by the Genius 
of Poetry." 

During the first long year of his sculptor life, Barthol- 
omew met with no encouragement, but he sought no friend- 
ship, asked no sympathy, followed no counsel. With sullen 
puritan zeal he followed his unremitting toil, with the certain 
knowledge that it would bring him fame and foitune. 



His morning walks through the streets of Rome were 
emblematic of his character. In the middle of the 
broadest road swerving neither right nor left, seeing nei- 
ther great nor small, attracted by no novelty, moved by no 
excitement, startled by no accident, he moved along as 
though a part of another race or another age. Solitary, 
earnest, indefatigable, no interference troubled him, no 
criticism ruffled him, no obstacle deterred him from stead- 
fastly pursuing the course he had mapped out. 

Pleasure called him to other routes, but he heard no 
sound of her melodious voice ; want gave the warning 
that his road was difficult, but he heeded not the solemn 
charge ; starvation stared him coldly in the face, but he 
gave a steady answering look and kept straightforward 
in his chosen path. Success of others roused no envy, 
continued want brought no despondency. Having only 
allowed himself the barest necessities, he nevertheless 
saw his purse exhausted ; and with a trifling loan from a 
fellow-student almost as poor as himself, only a few 
paltry coppers stood between him and utter destitution- 
Still, knowledge of his power, certainty of final success, 
prevented his hesitating or shrinking from his studies, 
and just when weaker minds would have given up the 
object sought, then.Bartholomew became more determined 
to persevere ; then he became most confident of a quick 
relief; and then, less than a year before the weakening 
strands of his short life gave way, that relief came, — sud- 
den, full, and generous like a Dansean shower, the sunlight 
of prosperity began to descend upon him. Fame came and 
money enough to lift the long-borne burden of debt from 
his shoulders just ere he died, and drive from his death 
chamber the haunting phantoms of want and care. That 
was all ; be had no time to realize his success, to rest in 
delicious ease after the weary struggle, and gather strength 
for greater things. 


He had made two visits to America, (be first to super- 
intend the erection of a monument to Charles Carroll ; but 
the second was directly after the sudden appreciation of 
his genius, and on this visit he received, in connection 
with the eminent American painter, Church, who was a 
native of Hartford, Ct., the compliment of a public dinner 
from the citizens of that place, at which a most genial 
feeling prevailed, and several admirable speeches were 
delivered by gentlemen of the highest culture. The oc- 
casion was rare and memorable and left the most delightful 
associations in the heart of Bartholomew, who returned to 
Italy with fresh zeal and higher aspirations, but returned 
only to die. Ere many months, fatal symptoms, the result 
of previous illness and subsequent trials, appeared. Vis- 
iting, one spring day, the beautiful English cemetery at 
Borne, he said to his companion, ^One of these grassy 
mounds will soon be raised over me." He was induced 
to try a change of air and went to Naples, where he died 
on the third day of May, 1858. 

Speaking of him and bis work, H. J. Tuckerman, an 
eminent critic, says : ^Bartholomew was a manly enthusiast. 
• • .With patient self-devotion, a generous interest in 
and appreciation of others, and a versatile and constantly 
enlarging scope and impulse, he possessed all the elements 
of success as an artist. Though most of his subjects were 
classical, many scriptural illustrations occupied his mind 
and his inventive, were fast developing with his executive 
faculties. . . Of the peculiar claims of his genius, 
perhaps the most individual merit has been justly indicated 
by tlie remark of onq who knew him well and recognized 
in bis works and prevalent talent *an intuitive perception 
of the strongest and most statuesque aspect of a theme.'" 

An art correspondent of the "Penn. Inquirer" says : "It 
is no exaggeration to say that there never lived a man, at 


least since the ancient Greeks, who, with the same number 
of years' study, produced finer works ; that no living sculp- 
tor is now producing finer ones, and no one thirty-five 
years old ever gave better promise for his future than Mr. 

These strong assertions are not made carelessly or from 
impure motives, but are the deliberate judgment of one 
who has had full facilities for gaining a knowledge of the 

Mr. Bartholomew at this time had the largest studio in 
Some and his conuBissions exceeded sixty thousand dollars. 
Whal he had accomplished may be partly realized by the 
mention of his principal works, many of which are familiar 
to those who have seen his collection in the Bartholomew 
Gallery of Wadsworth AthensBum, Hartford, Ct. : Calypso, 
Sappho ; Eve ; Campagna Shepherd Boy ; Infant Pan and 
Wizards ; Genius of Painting ; Genius of Music ; Belisarius 
at the Porta Pincio, Hagar and Ishmael ; Ruth, Naomi 
and Or ; Youth and Old Age ; Ganymede and the infant 
Jupiter, engraved for the London Art Journal; bust of 
Genevieve ; The Evening Star and Homer. Some of these 
are figures, some busts, and others bas-reliefs ; and to the 
list may be added several monumental works, including 
that for Charles Carroll. 

The noted artist S. S. Osgood, who did much to en- 
courage Bartholomew from his first decisive step and who 
comforted him in his last sickness, says: *^As I am an 
artist I can fully appreciate Bartholomew's wonderful gem^ 
iu8. I look upon him as having no equal among all our 
artists, who are great and many." 

A lady friend, "Grace Greenwood," mentions **Mr. 
Bartholomew as a singularly modest and sensitive man, 
who shrank from general society with a painful shyness, 
caused, I think, by the cruel results of the small-pox. He 


was a remarkably handsome and athletic young man when 
he was struck down, but rose up a cripple, shattered, 
marred, diseased. But the manhood of the spirit still 
stood erect and strong, the genius of the artist shone forth 
bravely above that dismal wreck of youthful beauty and 

He was a patient, courteous, chivalric soul. His am- 
bition seemed to me of the noblest character. He wished 
to be a great artist for the sake of art and his country. He 
never talked of fame or money, only of ideals and aspira- 
tions. He was a man of few but warm and constant 
friendships, • . but his deepest and tendcrcst affection 
seemed given to his mother." 

Speaking of his masterpiece ** JSve ReperUanty^ she says, 
"it seems to me by far the greatest modern statue I have 
seen in this country. It is a singularly original and cour- 
ageous piece of modelling, a noble figure, full of primeval 
strength and purity and the wild, unconscious grace of 
nature. . . It speaks almost through every line the 
universal language of grief and loss, and, without any ex- 
cess of woe or passionate appealing, its pathos finds its 
way to every heart. It is purely human sadness, all who 
have drunk deeply of the bitter springs of life have felt 
its like and know it well. The sculptor himself learned 
in suffering what he wrought in stone. The heavy sor- 
rowfulness that brooded over his soul at last took this 
beautiful imperishable shape, the transfiguration of a mel- 
ancholy life."

tie!*,) bom in Colchester, Conn., 26 June, 1826; married 
23 Jan., 1851, Mary A. Foster. 

Colonel Bartholomew received his education at the 
U. S. Military Academy in West Point, N. Y. ; afterwards 


holding a position of trust in Thompson's Express office 
in Springfield 9 Mass. When the late war started he went 
out with the 27th Mass. Vol. Infantry as captain. He soon 
brought his company to such perfection of drill that the 
post of honor, right of the line, was unanimously acceded 
to him. Dec. 6, 1861, he was promoted to Major and 27 
May, 1863, to Lieut. Col. For his conspicuous and mer- 
itorious service he was brevetted Colonel. He was an 
ideal soldier in appearance and bearing, in courage and 
discipline. He was a natural commander, obedience being 
rendered intuitively to superior worth. He was a com- 
bination somewhat rare in the army, a commander and a 
comrade. His place was emphatically on the field of action 
though he was nowhere deficient ; no heat of contest nor 
combination seemed able to disturb his equanimity, while 
no task seemed too great for a venture. He held his men 
by personal magnetism, and met anything like disorder or 
rout with a drawn sword and an austere ^halt P which 
was sure to bring order out of chaos. 

Although serving four years and in twenty-five battles, 
he passed through all unharmed until the last when he was 
so severely wounded that only his iron constitution saved 
his life, leaving his once handsome form terribly crippled. 
Col. Bartholomew has a fine orange grove on Hillsboro 
Bay, four miles south of Tampa, Florida, where he has 
resided for sixteen years. He is high sherifiT and ass't 
U. S. revenue collector for that vicinity. (For likeness

Is found enrolled as George Bartlemew on a list of the 
freeholders of Burlington County, N. J., in 1680. 

The majority of the inhabitants, and especially those 
who appear to have been his friends, were Quakers^ who 
had emigrated a short time before, from Yorkshire, Eng- 
land, to the section of which Burlington County was a part ; 
which was then known as Yorkshire Tenth. 

The records show that he was then married ; and that 
a land-suit was brought against him and his wife on Au- 
gust third of that year. 

Two months later, thirty acres of land were surveyed 
for him at Lazy Point ;^ and the following March he and 
his wife Mary sold her house and land on Burlington Island. 

'There is a tradition in one branch of this family that George Bartholomew was 
a French HuKuenot driven to England by Catholic pcrsocntiou, and tlience eniigra- 
te<l to America with the flrst settlers under William Penn. The only evidence found 
to conflrm this is tlie fact that one of his grandsons was named Augustine. Bat 
many French names and forms wore still common with the English, and the name 
Augustine was IVequently used by them. 

Ttie other appearances are strongly in favor of an English ancestry. It is strange 
bnt true, that nearly every American and English family, and many of the German 
famillea with which the writer has corresponded, have wrongly claimed a French 

The most of these traditions are supposeil to have arisen from an erroneous asso- 
ciation of the family with the tonible mabsiicre of the Huguenots in Paris and IfVance, 
on tlie 24th of August, 1572; wliich liaving been tlic day of the year chosen by the 
Catholic Church to celebrate the martyrdom of the apostle Bartholomew, this mas- 
lacre has since been known an the Saint Bartliolomow massacre. Thv tradition has 
also probably received straugth t¥om tlie pronunciation of the la^t syllable, *'mew." 
•A ftw milea above Philadelphia, on the Delaware rivor. 



The next mention found of them is the 25th of October, 
1683 ; which shows that they had moved among the first to 
Philadelphia, and that he was probably then the proprietor 
of its only public house ; the first in the city and the state ; 
which has ever since been known as the Blue Anchor Tav- 
ern. It was here that William Penn first landed and was 

July 25th following, George Bartholomew was granted 
by William Penn a lot adjoining the tavern, which was 
laid out Aug. 1, 1684, but the patent did not issue until 

This tavern has been said, by what authority is not known, 
to have been the first house built in the city. It was sold, 
18 Jan^ 1682, by William Dare of Penn., to Colonel Ed- 
ward Hilt of Virginia; and, 20 Nov., 1684, by him to 
GriflSth Jones; and, 16 May, 1686, George Bartholomew, 
•^Carpenter," who had been its proprietor, purchased it for 
£150. The following month he mortgaged it ; ^'standing 
in the street of the said town" not including ^Hhe soyle 
whereon it stood,*' and two city lots, one being bounded 
on the south by his ^* Log house," to Griffith Jones for £125 
to be paid "in Pork, Cattle and Beeff." 

This mortgage not having been paid, his widow, Jane 
Bartholomew, placed Mr. Jones in possession of the prop- 
erty on the 20th of Dec, 1689. 

The accompanying cut is correct as to location, and 
gives the general appearance of the building about one 
hundred years later. 

George Bartholomew died before September 9, 1689, 
when letters of administration upon his estate were granted 
to his widow, and an inventory was made of which the 
following is a copy.

When his first wife died is not known, but it was afler 
25 Oct., 1683. Nor is it known when he married his last 
wife ; the first mention of whom is in the settlement of 
his estate. 

No positive evidence has been found of his having had 
other children than Jeremiah ; but from John being origi- 
nally from Philadelphia, and later from the same section 
of Bucks County as Jeremiah, and of about the same age, 
from the favoring traditions, and having mutual intimato 
friends, it has been considered proper with this explanation 
to place John and his brother Thomas in the record as sons 
of George.

2 Jeremiah^ (&'eo.,^) "On the 6th day of 10th month 
(Dec), 1716," Jeremiah Bartholomew appeared in com- 


pany with Ellen Cutler, at a monthly meeting of the Friends 
in Middletown, Bucks Co., Pa., and declared their inten- 
tion of marriage with each other, and again on the third day 
of the following month. On the seventh day of the next 
month (Feb'y) the committee appointed for the occasion 
reported the marriage ** decently accomplished." 

Ellen Cutler was bom "ye 31st of ye 8th month (Oct.) 
1687," was a daughter of Edmund (and Isabel) Cutler of 
Woodhouse in Bollando, Yorkshire, England ; who, with 
bis brother John, brought a letter ^From our Monthly 
Meeting at Settle in ye County of Yorke this third day of 
ye fourth month (June) 1685, unto the Monthly meeting 
of Friends in ye city of Philadelphia in Pensylvania in 
America or elsewhere to whom these may conserne Salu- 
tation " etc. 

Edmund Cutler died in Bucks Co., Pa., 2 Feb., 1694-5. 

On the 18 Nov., 1719, Jeremiah Bartholomew of the 
County of Bucks, Yeoman, son and heir of George Bar- 
tholomew, formerly of Philadelphia, Carpenter, deceased, 
" for 28£ and other good causes " conveys to Sarah, widow 
and testator of Anthony Morris, deceased, all of his inter- 
est in the Blue Anchor Tavern proi)erty, not including the 
" soyle whereon it stood," and certain lots, all of which had 
been mortgaged by his father to Griffith Jones in 1686. 

OnthelOthof Dec, 1719 and 21st of Feb., 1736, "Jer- 
emiah Bartholomew of Southampton, Bucks Co., and Ellen 
his wife, sole executrix of the last will and testament of 
W™. Cutler, late of Southampton " deed the Southampton 
land, some 312 acres, inherited from her father. 

Their names also appear on the Friends' records of mar- 
riage certificates as witnesses. The following dates of 
births of their children are copied from the records of the 
Middletown Monthly Meeting.

6 ii George, ** bom Ist of 7th mo. (Sept.) 1721.' 

7 Hi William, ** bom 7th of 11th mo. (Jan.) 1723." (1724). 

Iv Mary, ** bom 4th of 3d mo. (May) 1726 ;" possibly m. 19 
June, 1778, Jno. Bargnm. . 

8 Jolin^ (Georg^,) born in 1684-5, appears in 1699 
as a ^ singleman " of Marcus Hook (which was a few miles 
south of Philadelphia) in the list of the congregation of 
the Swedish Church in Philadelphia. He married, about 
1712, Mary Perry ( ?)• ; and died 30 Oct., 1756, set. 71. 

On the 16 April, 1722, John Bartholomew and John 
Jones, both of Bucks Co., loan money and take a mort- 
gage on land in both Bucks and Montgomery Counties. 

In 1749, Richard Allen, brassfounder, and wife Eliza- 
beth of Lower Dublin, deed John Bartholomew of Mont- 
gomery township, yeoman, a lot in Philadelphia, which 
Mr. Bartholomew and his wife Mary, of Montgomery, sell 
the following year. 

He is mentioned often between 1740 and 1756 as of 
Montgomery ; but loaned money, took mortgages, and 
bought land in Bucks Co. ; holding at one time, several 
hundred acres in Eockhill Township. 

In the printed extracts from the journal of Mr. Seward, 
companion of the celebrated preacher, George Whitfield, 
appears the following : 

*^Ap. 23, 1740. Came to John Bartholomew's at Mont- 
gomery and were kindly entertained, the Lord commandeth 
persons everywhere to provide for us, what need therefore 
have we to take thought for the Morrow, what we shall 
eat or what we shall drink ; no I always find that if I seek

Mary Perry wiis probably wife or widow of a brother of Mary Bartholomew.

things, necessary and convenient are added unto me nay, 
more, I find good measure, pressed down and running orer, 
Men are willing to give into our Bosoms, and that the 
Lord not only provides Food, but such Food as is conve<- 
nient for us. CSopied several of Mr. Whitfield's letters, 
prayed with several of the Family who sat up for me and 
went to rest in the arms of my dear Lord Jesus.'' 

In 1749 he, with J. & D. Evans, made a deed to the 
Baptist Church in Montgomery, of the site on which it 

He ^ was Baptized and Rec'd into (its) Communion," 
24 Apr., 1724, hiswife joining by ^credentials she brought ** 
13 Jan., following; he had previously been a member of 
the Swedes' Church in Montgomery County. 

He was ** ordained " a ruling Elder of that church, 20 
June, 1734. 

The dates of his children's births are from the records 
of the same church. 

His will, written seven days before his death, speaks 
of himself as of Montgomery Township, of his great age, 
wife Mary: sons, Joseph, deceased, who had children; 
Thomas ; John ; Andrew and children John, Mary and Jo- 
seph ; Benjamin : Augustine, as gone to sea ; and Edward : 
and daughters, Ann, wife of Thomas Waters ; Elizabeth,

Thomas ; granddaughter Hannah, daughter of Isaac Davis ; 
and a white servant named George. Wife Mary and son 
John to be the executors. Trustees, John Jones, David 
Evans, Isaac, James and Humphrey Bate. Witnesses ; 
Joseph and Edward Ambler and Abel Griffiths. 

The inventory of his estate amounts to £1040 and in- 
cludes four negro slaves and ** one white slave." 



The will of Mrs. Bartholomew of Montgomery, sealed 
18 July, 1762, proved 7 Oct., 1762, speaks of being very 
old and a widow. Mentions son Edward ; granddaughter 
Elizabeth, wife of Patrick Anderson; granddaughters 
Hannah and Mary, daughters of Isaac Davis ; grandchildren 
John, Joseph and Mary, children of her son Andrew; 
grandchildren Benjamin, John, Hannah and Rachel, chil- 
dren of her son Joseph, deceased ; daughters Elizabeth Da-

Davis. Trustees, John Jones, David Evans, Humphrey 
Bate and Joseph Griffith. Witnesses, John Davis, William 
Murray and Benj . Griffith . And a legacy to her sister Mary 

t 1762. 

The inscription on his gravestone in Montgomery Bap- 
tist Churchyard is as follows : 

In Memory of 
John Bartholomew 
who Departed this life 
the 30*»» Day of October 
1756. Aged 71 years.

continuing such for four years ; at the age of 23 (1775), 
was a member of the Committee of Safety, continuing on 
that important committee for two years. July 15, 1776, 
he appears as a member of the famous convention of that 
date. At the breaking out of the Revolutionary War, he 
raised a company and entered the service (1776) as its 
lieutenant, under Capt. Perse vor Frazer in Col. Wayne's 
regunent. Oct. 2, 1776, he was commissioned a captain 
and attached to the 58th Penn. regiment. He was wounded 
in the leg at the Battle of Brandy wine, Aug., 1777, and 
was in the Battles of Monmouth, N. J., June, 1778. He 
continued with General Anthony Wayne's brigade during 


all the campaign and shared all the many hardships it en- 
countered. When the army was re-organized, late in 
1780, Capt. Bartholomew was retained. 

He was justice of the peace in Chester County in 1777. 

Later in life he refused all public offices which were 
frequently urged upon him ; without the vanity that seeks 
place and pomp, and loving home and quiet, he devoted 
himself with great industry and great executive ability 
to his farm and home exclusively, making them models of 
success and happiness. 

His farm was a portion of the large estates left by his 
father in East Whiteland. Children :

This family, according to a tradition which, so far as 
possible to test, has proved correct, and which was given 
by Mrs. Hannah (Bartholomew) O'Daniel,* and faithfully 
preserved, is as follows : — During the terrible persecution 
of the Huguenots in France by the Catholics, this family, 
who were residents of the then French province of Alsace, 
and of the Huguenotic faith , were nearly annihilated . This 
branch saved themselves by flight to the mountains of 
Switzerland. The persecution was so bitter that one of 
the family, a zealous old maid, had to be placed in a large 
cask and carted out of the country. 

After these troubles had passed, during the latter por- 
tion of the seventeenth century, part of the family settled 
in Holland and in the early part of the eighteenth century 
came to America. 

Traditions, when they apply to events over a century 
past, are usually wrong. The above may also be wrong 
as to the residence in France, although nothing contrary 
to the tradition is known now ; but the other portion, as 
to their being Protestants from Holland, has been confirmed 
by each branch. 

That the above named were brothers is known concerning 
Daniel and Jacob, and considered quite certain concerning 
John as they were of about the same age and he, although 

^Daughter of John >. 



living some distance from Daniel, was appointed by the 
Couiii to administer Daniel's estate, although Jacob was 
then living. 

The names of their parents are not known. 

It would not be a surprise to the author if it should some 
time be learned that Benjamin^ Henry^ and Joseph^ 
Bartholomew, were also brothers of the above ; but no 
evidence of it has been found, although they seem 
to have been of the same section, same class, same 
nationality, and about the same age. And being of 
the same name and that an uncommon one, it has 
been considered proper to mention here the possibility of 
the relationship. 

1 John is first mentioned in the Philadelphia records, 
19 Jan., 1730, when he (Johan Bartholome) purchased 
of John Henry Kalkglaser, an assignee of the Frankford 
(Holland) Company, and his wife Agnes 22^ acres of land 
in Germantown, Pa. On the 28 July following, he "Jo- 
han Bartholome of Germantown, wheelwright," and his wife 
Dorothy, deeded 1^ acres of above with the improvements 
on the same. In 1736 he deeded ** Geo. Herger the Black- 
smith," a portion of the same. The clerk, in recording 

this deed, was apparently bothered to decipher the wit- 
nesses* signatures, and after making a fac-simile of them, 
re-marks in coarae lettering ''DUTCH." 

He also sells a larger portion of the same in Feb., 1743, 

and two months later buys 469 acres in Bethlehem, Hunt- 

"dott Co., N. J., which he sold 3 May, 1757. When 



naturalized in 1740, he is mentioned as a foreigner and 
preferred to affirm rather than take an oath. 

He owned other property in both Germantown and Beth- 
lehem. He had the following advertisement* published. 

**Sept. 1, 1751— Johan Bartholoma in Philadelphia 
County makes known that he will sell a plantation of 175 
acres of Land. It was formerly an Indian Town, and was 
called Mussicamiokem. There is on it a good dwelling 
house and a great frame bam. The whole land has many 
flowing springs by which many meadows can be watered. 
Many meadows are already made and still more can be 
made. There are about 80 acres of cleared land well fenced 
and it has a number of thrifty green hedges. The rest is 
good woodland and in particular has large poplar trees for 
sawblocks. There is on it a good bearing orchard ; has a 
good deed : whoever is so inclined may inquire of the 
owner near the place. Louis Greschicht. Schreiber.'' 

This shows that he then was living in Germantown; 
and his appointment 22 Feb., 1768, as administrator of 
Daniel Bartholomew's (of Amwell Township) estate and 
his administration account rendered 17 Feb., 1769, show 
him to have been then a yeoman of Bethlehem Township. 
The fac-simile of his signature is from the papers concerning 
the Bethlehem purchase of 1743. 

About 1770 he moved with his family to the valley of 
the Charlotte river then in Tryon Co., but now partly in 
Schoharie, Oswego and Delaware counties, where he had 
purchased of Sir Wm. Johnson, a tract of landf containing 

* Translated and fliniished by the Hon. S. W. Pennypacker. See page 481 
tThis one thousand acre tract layabout equally on the north and south sides of 
Charlotte River, in the old towns of Canajoharie, now Worcester, and Harpersileldt 
abontequal distance Arom the present villages of CharlottesTille and South Worces- 
ter, being now mostly owned and occupied by C. W. Martin, P. Mitchel and J. Mut- 
ter, and on which A. S. Gibbs, Esq., historian of Delaware Co., was bom. The section 
in which this tract lies was long known by the name of ** Bartholomew Settlement." 



In the final account, closing the administration, 17 Feb., 
1769, his widow Elizabeth is mentioned but not the children. 

Mrs. Elizabeth subsequently moved with the family te 
Liaurel Hill, Lancaster Co., Pa., to the neighborhood of 
her brother-in-law Jacob Bartholomew, whose grandsons 
remember the relationship between them. She subsequent- 
ly moved to western Penn., and married » at Falls of Ohio, 
a Mr. Smith. Children : 

i A daughter,' m. Peter PicMngpaw, and lived and d. in Green 
Co., Pa. 

ii A daughter. 
12 Ui John, m. Dmsllla Glasgo ; d. in Indiana. 

18 It Joseph, b. 15 Mar., 1766; d. 4 Nov., 1840. 

3 Jacob^ is said to have lived in Earl Township, Lan- 
caster Co., Penn., where his brother-in-law, Daniel Hye, 
also resided, who, after Jacob's death, brought up Jacob, Jr. 
His widow married, second, a Mr. Hugo, and had son Jo- 
seph who moved to Ohio. 

There was a Jacob Bartholomew, a blacksmith, of Earl 
Township, who married 19 Mar., 1801, Anny Mary Gehr, 
in Leacock Township, Lancaster Co., Pa., and died about 
June, 1806. Administration was granted upon his estate, 
1 July, 1806, to his widow Mary ; in the settlementof which, 
John Gehr is mentioned and young children John and Eliz- 
abeth. Adam Miller was later made their guardian ; and 
final settlement of estate and guardianship was not made 
until 1822. Children : 

14 i Jacob,' b. Feb., 1758; d. Jaly, 1882. 
U Catherine, m. Jacob Castler. 

lU A son, ran away from home at fifteen years of age and 
was never heard from.

have subsequently married an Elizabeth Madges, and died 
at the house of his daughter Bebecca, in Harpersfield, O., 
in 1827, at the advanced age of 96 years (or 99 years and 
8 months*). 

Mr. Bartholomew took part in the French and Indian 
War and later moved to the Charlotte River Valley with his 
father. He suffered severely during the Revolutionary 
War, in which he took part ; his house and bams being 
burned and his family driven, with the balance of the in- 
habitants, to take refuge in the Schoharie Fort or leave 
that section entirely. 

In 1778, he and his family were taken prisoners by 
Brandt and his Indians, the night before they attacked the 
fort which they intended to surprise and to massacre the 
numbers of people who had fled to it for refuge. Tewalt 
was released on conditions which he immediately violated ; 
by taking his wife and two babies and marching through 
the snow, twenty-eight mUes to the fort, arriving there the 
next morning just in time to arouse the occupants and aid 
in repelling the Indian attack. 

He was a man of small stature but of great courage, as 
an incident will show. During the war, the picket at an 
important point, each morning for several successive days, 
had been found tomahawked and scalped ; he volunteered 
to take the place of a friend, but less experienced woods- 
man, ordered to serve at that post, and succeeded in killing 
the Indian who advanced slowly under the protection of a 
bush be carried, in the darkness of the night, to kill Bar- 
tholomew as he had killed the other pickets. He was at one 
time a prisoner in Canada. His residence may have been 
a part of the time, in the valley of the Cobbleskill in Scho- 
harie County. 

* Says Gen. Riley L. Bartholomew. 


In 1805, aged about 75 , he moyed with his family to 
Ohio and became the first settler in the present township 
of Geneva, locating on the South Ridge Boad near the west 
bank of Cowles Creek, and in his new home he rose to 
considerable distinction. (History of Ashtabula Co. , O. ) 

It is related in connection with his marriage, that one 
was ^ Low Dutch and the other High Dutch," and that 
they found difficulty in the differences in the languages and 
agreed to use only English in the family. He could neither 
Dead nor write English, but was devoutly attached to his 
Dutch Bible^ Prayer and Hymn Books. His sons were 
all frontiersmen in the War of 1812. The family were 
called by the poorer tories during the Revolution, ^ Upper 
Leather " which would now be termed " Upper Ten " or 
aristocratic. Children :

There is some doubt about his being son of John, and one 
of his descendants calls him "Adam," but the above seems 
to have as much evidence as any other theory to support it.

General Bartholomew* was left fatherless before the age 
of two years and his mother moved shortly after to 
Laurel Hill, Penn., where his early boyhood was passed 
on a farm. Even when a boy, necessity required him to 
learn to use a rifle ; at ten years of age he joined a 
scouting party in a campaign against the marauding In- 
dians ; and often, during the Revolutionary War, served as

a patrol. After that war be moved to Ohio, then the North 
Western Territory ; remaining but a short time, be went 
down the Ohio River and settled in Kentucky, a little 
above the present city of Louisville, which was then being 
laid out. Here his early Indian experience served him 
often, as the troubles with them were incessant. 

On one occasion, Bartholomew being sick, and the other 
men of the settlement all away, the Indians came in and 
took all their horses ; as soon as he could he followed them 
and, with only a boy of twelve to assist him, attacked the 
Indians and recaptured and brought the horses back. He 
served, about 1793, two years as a scout and guide under 
Gen. Wayne; being at Fort Jefferson, 23 Oct., 1793, 
and in the following very hazardous campaign against the 
Maumeos, serving in the very important but dangerous 
position of scout and guide, with two thousand warriors 
under the chief. Little Turtle, hovering close around them 
all the time. 

He participated in the battle of the 20th of Aug., 1794, 
at the Rapids of the Maumee and in various lesser en- 

In 1800 with a few during neighbors, he moved across 
the Ohio river and settled near the present site of Charles- 
town, Ind. 

The settlers kept up a military organization with him 
in command. On the 21 Sept., 1803, Joseph Bartholo- 
mew was commissioned by Gov. Harrison, a Major in the 
Clark County militia. He was promoted about three 
years later to Lieut. Colonel and about 1811 to Colonel. 

In the celebrated Battle of Tippecanoe, Col. Bartholo- 
mew was severely wounded by a rifle ball in the arm, 
breaking both bones, in the early part of the action ; not- 
withstanding which, and the pain and suffering therefrom, 
he remained with his command, directing and encouraging 


his men, until the close of the battle. Gov. Harrison, in 
his official raport to the Secretary of War, after mentioning 
that the whole infantry was formed into a small brigade 
under Col. Boyd, says, ^Col. Joseph Bartholomew, a 
very valuable officer, commanded under Col. Boyd, the 
militia infantry, he was wounded early in the action." 

For his distinguished services in this battle. Col. Bar- 
tholomew was promoted and commissioned Brigadier 
General of the Militia of Indiana Territory by the U. S. 
Government. The following resolution was adopted by 
the House of Representatives on the 4th day of Dec, 1811 ; 
** Resolved • . that the thanks of this house be pre- 
sented to Col. Luke Decker and Col. Joseph Bartholomew, 
the officers, non-commissioned officera and men composing 
the Militia Corps under their command . • . for the 
distinguished valor, heroism and bravery displayed by 
them in the brilliant battle fought with the Shawnee 
Prophet and his confederates on the morning of the 7th 
of November, 1811, by the Army under the command of 
His Excellency William Henry Harrison." About a year 
after the defeat of Tecumseh at Tippecanoe, a draft was 
made on the militia for active service, in which John Bar- 
tholomew, a son of the General, was drafted. The Gen- 
eral, believing his son unable to stand the fatigue and 
exposure of a campaign, took his place as a substitute. 

The army to which the dmfted men of Clark Co. were 
attached, was under the command of Gen. Russell, and 
marched to the relief of Fort Harrison then besieged by 
the Indians. Early in the march, the commanding officer 
was taken sick and sent for private Bartholomew (who, 
although acting as private in place of his son, held the 
commission of Brigadier Genenil in the Militia of Indiana 
Territory) and placed him in temporary command of the 
army. For his activity, perseverance and courage in this 


campaign and several expeditions, he was commissioned a 
Major General of volunteers by President Madison. 

Gen. Bartholomew filled a number of stations in the 
civil service with honor, serving as representative, senator 
and presidential elector. He was one of the commissioners 
^ho located, in 1821, the permanent capital of Indiana at 

He became security for the official conduct of a friend 
who proved a defaulter for a considerable sum, which 
caused General Bartholomew much trouble, compelling him 
to sell the rich and beautiful farm on which he had so long 
and happily resided and move from Clark County where 
he was beloved, esteemed and respected by every inhabi- 
tant; for all could bear testimony to his integrity and 
worth, and great regret was felt at his departure. He re- 
moved to McLean Co., III., in 1830, and at the age of 
sixty-four began the world anew, opening a farm which 
he cultivated with his old industry and skill ; and his hon- 
est face and amiable manners soon made his new neighbors 
warm friends. 

He was a skilful trapper and in the latter part of winter 
and early spring followed that business for many years ; 
setting his traps mostly on the Arkansas and White rivers. 

He was made senior warden of the Blazing Star Lfodge, 
No. 3 of Free and Accepted Masons of Charlestown, Ind., 
at the time of their charter in 1816. 

The County of Bartholomew in Indiana was so named 
in his honor by the State Legislature. 

G^n. Bartholomew was a self-taught, modest, truthful, 
brave and honest man who rose from obscurity and ob- 
tained distinction, solely by his merits. 

He took a deep interest in the presidential campaign 
of 1840, and addressed several mass meetings in the in- 
terest of his old friend and compatriot William Henry 




Harrison ; but was seized with his last illness a few days 
before and died the evening of the election. (See likeness

1 Ada Elizabeth,^ b. 26 May, 1878. 









1 Benjamin^ may have been brother of John, Daniel 
and Jacob (see page 459) and Henry (see page 535). 
Tradition says he was born in Holland or Germany. He 
was a wheelwright and resided in Coventry, Chester Co., 
Pa., at the time of his death in 1760; where his widow, 
Catherine Bartholomew, petitions the conrt to grant ad- 
ministration "to John Paul, yeoman, of Vincent, Chester 
Co., Pa., principal creditor," on the estate of her "deceased 
husband, Benjamin Bartholomew, late of Coventry." "That 
he will do justice by mo and my children." Letters of 
administration were granted to John Paul, 5 Nov., 1760. 
The estate was divided as follows : one-third to the widow, 
two shares to the eldest son and a share each "to the five 
younger children." 

The following are supposed to have been his children. 
Daniel, Jacob and Jonathan are known to have been broth- 
ers ; their father was a wheelwright of Chester Co., named 
Benjamin, who came from the borders of France and Ger- 
many and died during their boyhood. John lived in the 
town of Coventry where Benjamin died, and every indi- 
cation points to his having l)een a son of Benjamin. 

Daniel,* b. about 1740; was killed in the Revolution. 

Jacob, b. about 1743; il. In 1813, ait. 70. 

John» b. about 1745; d. about 1782.

from Chester to Bucks Co., Pa. ; residing at Strawntown 
in Haycock Township, one mile from Applebachsville. 

He, as well as all of the different branches of this family, 
was originally of the German Reformed Church. He was 
a soldier in the Continental Army and was killed in 1779 
by an army wagon he was driving, passing over him. 

His will made 5 Jan., 1777, proven 6 Mar., 1779, names 
his wife Hannah and John Ludwick as executors, and 
devises his property to his widow during her life, and at 
her decease to be divided among his children share and 
share alike. Children :

bom a Bartholomew that Is known ; although many have 
nearly attained that great age. Her life was that of a 
quiet farmer's wife, enjoying excellent health until a short 
time previous to her death, when she was attacked by 
apoplexy. She was born before the nation, lived to see it 
pass all its struggles for existence and enter upon the last- 
ing peace now promised. Ch.

1 Henry ^ was probably born in Holland. Ho early 
settled near Philadelphia, Pa., where he followed the 
trade of a blacksmith. Tradition says he was there while 
it was yet thickly settled with Indians ; that he also resided 
for a time near Bethlehem, Northampton Co., Pa. ; and 
that he was a very resolute man. He may have been a 
brother of John, Jacob and Daniel (see page 159), and 
of Benjamin (see page 515). 

His estate was admitted to probate 8 Oct., 1743, in 
Philadelphia, and administration granted ^to Thomas 
Moyer of Philad*, Potter, (?. on the Estate late of Henry 
Bottlemey Blacksmith deced (during the minority of Peter 
Henry & John* Nicholas Infant children of the deced." 

Children : 

2 1 Peter*, a Peter Bartholomew was a blacksmith in Bethel, 

Pa., also in Cocolico. 

8 il Henry, said to have, been bom in Easton, Pa. ; d. In Lan- 
caster County, 
iii John, may have been John of Lancaster Co. (see page 547). 

4 iv Nicholas, resided in Lancaster Co., Pa. 

2 Peter^ (fienry\) is probably the same as the Peter 
who was a blacksmith in Bethel, Pa., and in Cocolico, 
then in Lancaster Co., Pa., in 1767 and 1772, when he 
mortgaged and redeemed some land. 

* Although the A comes before John, the careless manner in which the paper 
waa written leaves it more than pi*obahlethat it should have been between John A 
Nicholas; and that but one name applied to a child, which was then the custom. 



Tradition says he was a German doctor. 

He was probably the father of the following children : 

6 i Daniel,' who was llvlDg Id Cocollco, in 1785. 
ii Matbew, who was liviDg in Bart., Pa., in 1790. 

3 Henry* (£fenry^) married Elizabeth Shofstall; is 
said to have been born in Easton, Northampton Co., Pa., 
where he appears to have passed a portion of his life. 'Tra- 
dition also says he resided many years near Philadelphia. 
He was at Bethel, Pa., in 1770, and called a blacksmith. 

The Lancaster County records mention him as of Stras- 
burgh, in 1764, 1777 and 1778, and in Bart, in 1779 and 
1787. Children:

4 Nicholas^ (Henry^,) was in Lancaster, Pa., as early 
as Mar. 5, 1761, when he mortgaged some land he owned 
there, redeeming it in 1767. The latest mention of him 
there is in 1782 when he repaired the town pump, and in 
the census of 1790. A Nicholas Bartholomew died in 
1790 at Roxbury, Pa., leaving a widow Catherine. A John 
Nicholas Bartholomew came to this country in the ship 
Peggy, James Abercrombie, commander, from Rotterdam, 
last from Plymouth, 24 Sept., 1752. Child : 

i Bernhard,' b. ab. 17G9 ; m. twice ; was probably son of above. 
He was a carpenter and inn-keeper and lived on Middle 
St., Lancaster, Pa., as early as 1813. Will, sealed 10 Doc, 
1834, proved 29 Dec, 1838, mentions only nephew Bernard 
Kcndig and two nieces Elizabeth, wife of David Kendig, 
and Catherine, wife of Samuel McDonald, children of his 


5 DanieP (Peter^^ Henry^^) is supposed to have been 
son of Peter as both lived in the small village of Cocolico 
at suitable times. And with as little reason he is supposed 
to be father of the following family, whose father was ^D." 
Bartholomew, a cousin of Bernhard Bartholomew (see 
No. 4). He was in Cocolico as late as 25 Feb., 1785, but 
in 1795, was a millwright in Lancaster. He afterwards 
resided one mile south of Stnisburgh, Pa., where he owned 
or rented what is now known as'^Musselman'smill." Was 
a Lutheran and probably lies buried in the old Methodist 
Church graveyard in Strasburgh. Children :

1 John^ may have been the same as John' (Henry^)^ 
of Philadelphia on page 535. He was born in Pennsyl- 
vania about 1740. One descendant says 11 May, 1746t 
and that his name was John Peter Bartholomew, also that 
he was an only son ; but the former date and name have 
the most rapporters. He certainly signed his name ^ John 
Bartholomew ;" and the tradition ** only son** is common 
when not true, although it may be in this case. He 
married, about 1765, Nancy Mordan ; and died in Jefferson 
Co., O., about 1823. She was born on the Atlantic Ocean, 
while her parents were emigrating from England to this 
country, and died about 1793. 

Mr. Bartholomew is said to have lived during his youth 
in Lancaster Co., Pa., but -moved to Maryland before the 
Bevolutionary war, and possibly before his marriage, set- 
tling on the bank of the Kishicoquillas Creek, near Han- 
cock, Washington Co., Md. ; ho also lived near Harper's 
Ferry, in Loudoun Co., Va. He was a shoemaker and 
farmer, and early a member of the German Reformed 
Church, but later of the Methodist Church, in which he 
occasionally ^exhorted.'' 

Physically, he is described as a tall, muscular man, 
with dark eyes and skin, and a round face, and of Hol- 
land or Oerman ancestry. 

He emigrated with his family to the vicinity of East 
Springfield, Jefferson Co., O. 



About 1805 his sister Mary, widow of Klein, died 

at his house in Ohio. Children :

1 Claudius Barteleme was the son of a merchant 
and was bom in Marseilles, France. In 1750, at the age 
of seventeen, he engaged in the regiment " Royal Rolison ** 
and shortly after came to America with Montcalm. 

The following copy of a letter which Claudius wrote to 
his brother in France, contains the only detailed account 
of his wanderings until he came to Derby, Conn. 

"Darby in the Colony of Connecticut America 

Sir and My Dear Brother 

This is to assure you of my very very humble 
respects and to enquire after the health of my friends. I 
am now enjoying good health, thanks be to God, 

I should inform you that after quitting you in order to 
make the tour of France, I engaged in the regiment ' Royal 
Rolison,' year 1756. Some of us embarked for Canada. 
I continued in good health until we arrived on the bars of 
Newfoundland ; there a malady broke out on board the 
vessel. Thanks be to God I recovered after having been 
dangerously ill. I then set my feet on the shores of Canada, 
but my knees were too feeble to sustain me ; yet not>vith- 
standing, five days after, sixty of us departed for a health 
house where we were cleansed. Some of us were ready 
to take advanced posts. 

In 1757 we went to besiege Fort Georgef which sur- 
rendered after a siege of nine days ; we made eighteen

scores of savages see the expediency of surrendering and 
being ready for capitulation. The savages had, in spite 
of all the officers and soldiers of the enemy, massacred the 
English prisoners and taken the infants at the breast by 
the feet and thrown them into the air, to fall to pieces on 
the rocks. 

In the year 1758, we gained a battle over the English, 
who were surrounded by ten thousand men strong ; we, 
having three thousand men, sustained for five hours by 
the clock, a strong fire and conquered. 

In the year 1759, in the month of May, we set out for 
Niagara, near which, one hundred and seventy of us found 
a health house where there was an abundance of water, 
and we were obliged to go into it in order to cleanse our- 
selves after filthy habits on board the vessel. When we 
came out our clothes were quite clean ; after having been 
three months at Niagara the English began the siege, and 
after sustaining it for twenty days, we were obliged to 

Afterward we were brought to New England, where I 
married a girl, by whom I have three children, two girls 
and one boy. I built me a house in which I dwelt and after- 
wards another in which I now live, thanks be to God. 

In the year 1762 I learned to read and write English, 
and in the year 1768 I learned to write French that you 
may hear from me after so long an absence. My Dear 
Brother, I have great pleasure in being able to give you 
my salutiition. I render thanks to my God, who has given 
to us his Holy Spirit, for the joys so pure in one who be- 
lieves in God and loves His Son, who is the door of Sal- 
vation to us poor sinners. I entreat you to pray for me 

Your very aflfectionate brother 

Claude Barteleme.** 


There are other letters and papers in possession of de- 
scendants which show that Claude continued his studies 
and became quite a scholar. His accounts show that he 
was very methodical. He wrote in clear round characters ; 
in fact was a beautiful penman seldom excelled in the 
present day. 

His mother, whoso name was Bey Barteleme, was a 
lady of high culture and education for those times. She 
writes of a son who was iu the French Government service. 
It was this brother to whom Claude's letter is written. In 
another letter she speaks of her property being confiscated, 
and that she was reduced to the necessity of ^ earning her 
bread by the sweat of her brow." 

Her old letters I the writing is now nearly obliterated 
by time. Eight generations have come on the stage of 
life since she made her d6but in this world. 

Claude Barteleme came to Derby iu 1760, and soon after 
married Susanna, daughter of Samuel and Mary (Lobdel) 
Plumb. Susanna was born 23 April, 1744; her father 
came from Milford and was one of the first settlers of 
Derby. He built a house on the opposite side of the street 
from the " Jewett house" at "up town." After settling in 
Derby he became a sea captain and eventually a large ship 
owner. In his religious views Claude was a devout Cath- 
olic, and his Catholic Bible containing the family record 
written by him is still preserved. 

He died in Derby, 10 Oct., 1824, set. 87. She died 
26 Jan., 1818. Children all born in Derby.

Capt. Bartelem^ made Derby his home, but was a mar- 
iner, owning his own vessels and engaged nearly all his 
life in the merchant service. Numerous incidents are 
related by his descendants, showing his great decision and 
courage; how that upon one occasion, during war, his 
heavily laden vessel being captured by a man-of-war, he 
succeeded in confining his captors below and sailed his 
vessel into an American port and delivered his capturers 


as captives. His foroe of character and superior worth 
made him a valuable citizen ; and the history of his native

1 John Henry* was born iii the borough of Friede- 
wald, Neader Hesse, Germany, in July, 1750 ; his father 
dying during John's childhood, he was adopted by a man, 
possibly his uncle, named Simodon, with whom he learned 
the printer's trade in Marburg, from 1769 to 1775. 

He returned to Hesse Castle the following year, and is 
said to have been forced into that portion of the Hessian 
Army, which was that year hired by the English to sub- 
due her American colonies. He is said to have landed 
with that army in Philadelphia, 22 Oct., 1776, to have 
soon joined the American Army, and to have settled in 
1778 in Upper Mount Bethel, Northampton Co., Pa. 
There he married, 8 Dec, 1778, Catherine, daughter of 
Henry Wideman. She dying, he married, second, before 
1800, Mrs. Elizabeth Peck. 

He was a ftirmer. Was usually known as Henry, but 
sometimes called John Henry Bartholomew. In the settle- 
ment of the estate of his father-in-law, Henry Wideman, 
in Jan., 1798, he is called "Henry Bartholomew." 

His son George said his father had no relations in this 
country, but some of his descendants say he had a brother 
and two sisters, but cannot give any information through 
which they can be traced. He died in Upper Mount 
Bethel in the spring of 1822 ; and his estate was admitted 
to probate 15 May, 1822, his son Philip being the ad- 
ministrator. Children :

This family held a meeting at Lock Haven, Pa., in Dec,

and collect a large amount of money supposed to be due

result of the mission to Germany and for further family 
data have been unanswered. Among those mentioned in 



connection with notices of their meetings were Bartholo- 
mews of Bellefonte, Pa., Smith brothers of Sterling Bun, 
Pa. 9 Samuel, Philip, John, William, Adam and Frederick 
Schaffer, and two sisters of Sterling Run ; two brothers of

1 Adam^ said to have been a Hessian soldier under 
Burgoyne until after his defeat at Saratoga, N. Y., in 
1777, when he is said to huve settled in Rensselaer Co., 
N. Y. ; but it is thought that the following record from 
the Reformed Dutch Church at Saugerties, Ulster Co., 
N. Y., refers to this family. 

Adam Bartholomew and Catharina Leeman (husband and 
wife) had children Johannes baptized 28 Nov., 1781, and 
Abraham baptized 28 June, 1784. 

Elizabeth Bartholomew and Frederick Eygenor were

An Adam Bartholomew came in ship John and Eliza- 
beth from Amsterdam 7 Nov., 1754. 

And in April, 1775, an Adam Bartholomew in New 
York, refused to join the New York Association, agi*ee- 
ing to carry on the war. 


Many Ulster County Dutch settlers were opposed to 
the Bevolutionary war and some joined the British army.
